As a political leftist, John McCain’s new memoir may seem to be an unusual choice, but I have great respect for McCain as a person who places his country and values above all else. I may not agree with many of his views, but I respect him, and the love and pride he demonstrates for the US. This book is filled with facts and opinions, broken down by situation, be it Benghazi, or his run for President with Sarah Palin. He takes ownership for his missteps and benchmarks himself and his country to the ideals of the Constitution of the United States. He is an example of how remaining open minded and allowing oneself to work with and learn from those with opposing views can allow for greater change.
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
