Title: Packing Light
Author: Allison Vesterfelt
What’s it about: One country singer, one blogger, one road trip, and whole lot of adventure.
Why did I read it: I stumbled across Branden Harvey’s “Story Portrait” of Allison a while back. I think that was my initial introduction to this wonderful author. More recently, I noticed that I followed a lot of people on Twitter that were sort of in the same circle. Not long after that, I decided to follow her on Twitter and read her book. I absolutely loved it. She’s so raw and transparent.
Favorite idea: “The problem with rules is that they don’t protect us like we think they do. Sometimes they don’t protect us because we don’t follow them, sometimes they don’t protect us because we become obsessed with them, and sometimes they don’t protect us because they were leading us in the wrong direction all along. Some rules are ill-advised, and we just keep following them blindly.”‘
