I couldn’t help but remember my first finals in University, freshman year. I was totally stressed and feeling like I wanted to give up (and it certainly didn’t help that one of my readings was the less than cheerful The Road, LOL). What I did during that time to calm down was look to A Prairie Home Companion and Garrison Keillor, who played a largish role in my childhood as the Man With The Imperturbable Voice. However, as I was not possessed of a radio, and had little idea of how I might get a radio program on the internet (something I’m still only familiar with in passing), I went to the public radio website, where Garrison Keillor answered listener questions, and began to sit down and read them all. The one below the read more really helped me, so much so that I copied it into a word document and saved it so I wouldn’t forget. Thanks, Garrison Keillor! When things get bad, you inspire me to keep going.
