Did you all catch this David Brooks piece, Love Story, last week? It is really well written and poignant. And this recommendation is coming from me who is not the biggest Brooks fan (I saw him speak on his book tour in Denver years ago with my Mom and he left a bad taste in my mouth)...so you should read it. Not to mention, a shout out and credit to Hannah and her blog that I read daily (and you should too!)...not least because it is named akhmatova!
