我关心整个可怕的很多。而且我希望能够把事情做得更好的方式大与小。在里面第一批我的欢乐广场列的,我鼓励读者分享他们去这种流行病检疫过程中发现欢乐的地方,并告诉我们什么让他们在那里。除了工作,到我们的问题的实际解决方案,我们必须找到一个和平的地方,并在我们的日常生活希望能巩固我们希望的储备。

I encouraged you to e-mail us ateditor@ebertdigital.comand tell us about a movie, TV show, book, play, song; or even a recipe, remembrance, person, dream or life’s experience that takes you to your Happy Place. I received some great submissions and today I am publishing a few of them. One submission was about a book, one was about a pivot a reader took from her career that gave her time to learn to cook and to lose weight, another spoke about her dogs, and we also found a very perceptive article about a movie that took the journalist to her Happy Place.

But in the interim something happened that is so extraordinary and historic that it filled me with me absolute untamed joy. Vice President Joe Biden chose Senator Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential pick for the 2020 elections coming up in November. So I will lead off Part II of my Happy Place article with this...

玛丽·米切尔Sun-Times文章“A Most Beautiful Thing" and why the movie touches her soul

Chicago Sun-Times记者玛丽·米切尔最近发表的关于电影“一个最美丽的东西”美丽和快乐地关节运动的文章,为什么纪录片是非常重要的(你可以完整地阅读它here). The movie, which follows the story of the first all-Black rowing team from Manley High School on Chicago's West Side, "shows the power of empathy," according to Mitchell.

“我们中的许多人无法与疼痛,这些young men experienced just trying to get from home to school,” she writes. “For instance, I grew up poor, but I don’t know what it is to have nothing to eat because my mother was strung out on crack and my father was nowhere to be found. I grew up in public housing where crime was a fact of life, but that was before the gangs and guns took over and young Black men were being shot dead on the street. The fact that these young men are alive to tell their own stories is itself a true triumph of the human spirit.”

学习做饭从珠宝事业摆动离开后带来的贝丝·米勒的喜悦

“银衬片一直是我的口头禅,在过去的几个月里,”米勒写道。“我闭上了珠宝企业在三月初一个非常成功的11年运行后,从旅行的兴奋和连接的生活隔离的一个,震耳欲聋的安静和未知的领域。我知道这是对我移动到一个地方和平与连接,我想做一些自己的安乐窝之外。我决定通过FaceTime公司与亲爱的朋友们烹饪课将督促自己对学习一项新技术,同时在一个美丽的方式我所爱交互的最佳方式。”

Beth Miller

"My friends were at first so surprised that the woman who eats out or does take out most nights and doesn’t really know how to use her oven would want to learn to cook," she continues. "These FaceTime cooking lessons have been my #untamed joy over the past few months. I love the feeling of accomplishment and connection. There’s plenty of laughter and along with these FaceTime cooking lessons I’ve built an amazing vegetable garden and lost close to 20 pounds, wonderful silver linings that bring me to my #happyplace in these unprecedented times."
