In Reading My Mind, former broadcaster and communication professor Roberta Cole shares provocative observations on the ever-changing landscape of our innermost thoughts. In this collection of narratives, she explores both the breathtaking and heartbreaking moments of a life - an enviable radio and teaching career, the haunting memory of family and friends, rituals of the daily grind, the EastCoast/WestCoast experience, retirement and the passage of time.
Cole also takes on the rewards of nature and travel, as well as the social subtext underlying technology, communication with physicians, treatment of the elderly, homelessness, restaurant behavior, and even hair salons.
The essays in Reading My Mind help us navigate the barrage of stimuli surrounding us and let us know we are not alone. They also provide a helpful look at what lies beyond the obvious-a seductive peek at what we would make of things if we were to read each other's minds.
