I’m 61 years old, female, from the United States. I’ve been a DailyLit member since August 13, 2010. My reading interests include Psychology, Women's fiction, Sociology, and Biography.
To Kill A Mockingbird changed my life. I lived half my life in the south and half in the northeast. The book gave such a wonderful vision of southern life, even at the time I read it in 1965. Atticus Finch and his relationship with his children showed me how non-judgment could be a way of life. Ever since, I have tried to look at everything with a more open approach, understanding that there are always different ways of looking at any situation, and that none of them are entirely right or wrong.
Many years ago, there was a full moon shining over Lake Michigan. It shone all the way to the shore. On that night, I felt as if I could walk on those rays and accomplish anything in my life. The moon and water have never lost their power over me since.
