“Didn’t you ever want to get up from your desk one day and just walk away, not to go get a latte, but I mean walk away and not come back?”
So asks Margaret Roach in her mesmerizing book trailer, and wonderful new book, And I Shall Have Some Peace There: Trading the Fast Lane for My Own Dirt Road.
Margaret left her mega-powerful job as editorial director of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Prior to that, she had been a New York Times editor.
She set out on a long journey to get to know herself — in her farmhouse in rural New York.
Her book trailer tells the story better than I ever could with words. (YouTube link here)
Margaret’s purpose in writing the book was to tell her own story of transformation, but also to encourage others to stop and make time for things they love.
“Just remember, we are finite creatures,” she says.
If you never make time for things you love, time may run out.
