Carlyn Beccia: Table of Contents
Welcome to my bright corner of the internet. That’s me, hoping the camera doesn’t steal my soul. (Spinning fast helps.)
This updated table of contents will help you find the topics that most interest you. These are not necessarily my most popular stories. But they are the ones that I put out into the world, hoping to make it better. You may find my topic headings strange. But I believe we read to feel — to learn, enlighten, escape, cry, laugh, and for one brief moment, step inside a world so different from our own.
Here are my doorways. Choose wisely…
Because you believe love is a powerful verb.
Because science is more fun with sex.
Because you are the person who always turns the dinner conversation into hushed silence.
Because you want to make museum visits more interesting.
Because you can’t stop people-watching.
Because you love women and want to support them.
Because you believe science is stronger than fear.
Because you want to understand yourself so you can understand others.
Because you want to understand animals so you can understand everything.
Because it’s so damn hard.
Because you see both the good and evil in this art.
Because you want to have a good cry and know someone else feels your pain.
Because you want to control your biases so that they never control you.
Because words are like air.
