Never Miss a New Post.
I'm John Constance of Raleigh, North Carolina. In 2021 I became frustrated with the negative tone and content of social media and decided that the world needed a more positive alternative. I have been blessed with a wonderful life and an interesting career in Washington, DC. I decided that the people, places, and things that I had experienced could be used to brighten your day. So I started this blog.
OF THE MONTH
With the constant barrage of news about Ukraine, it occurred to me how little I know about the history of Russia. The book that I chose to learn more is The Story of Russia by Orlando Figes (Henry Holt & Company, NY; 2022. Well written, brief, and comprehensive, the book illuminates the ideas that have shaped the way Russians think about their past.
