Over the last several years I’ve submitted short pieces to KQED radio, the local PBS station, for a segment called “Perspectives.” I’ve swung and missed a number of times, but I did make it onto the show with these three. Instead of digging into the Rejection Collection today, I thought I’d start off this week with some positive thoughts. While getting rejected happens to writers all the time, finally getting a “yes” is one of the more satisfying reasons to keep trying.
It’s been a while since I’ve hit the mark with the editor of this program, but just seeing my name in the archives still feels pretty good. So, listen to me while I briefly wax philosophical on random topics.
FYI: There are short PBS-style commercials at the beginning and end of these recordings, but no pledge breaks–I promise!
The Unexamined Life from my days as a college counselor;
Old is the New Young because it still is;
The Things We Made for anyone who ever did macramé and isn’t ashamed to say so.
And with a perspective…thanks for listening!
