I remember my Grandmother teaching me the riddle “What’s black and white and red all over?” when I was about my son’s age. I thought it was so clever. We recently starting subscribing to the Sunday New York Times again after a long stretch of getting our news online. I missed having a paper and also feel like my son should grow up with one in the house. It is great that you can search and find things online and my husband is a big fan of flipboard, but there is something about the tactile experience. My son asks me to read him sections and looks at the photographs.
I moved from San Francisco to New York in 1999 as a result of the Sunday Times. One Sunday I saw an add announcing a new consulting firm that sounded interesting. I wrote a cover letter and sent my resume that day. I ended up moving across the country and being employee eighty-nine of what became a very successful start up. I never would have known about the company if not for a Sunday where I took more time than usual to read the paper.
I take my time reading it now. Sometimes I am catching an article on a Tuesday afternoon with my lunch. It is not about the headlines and being up to the minute. It is about enjoying the experience. And I am finding articles I likely would not have found online.
