How bell hooks got me through a tumultuous year of my life

In 2004, while waiting for customers at the local coffee shop where I worked in Berea, Kentucky, I wrote in my notebook, "The one person who will never leave us, whom we will never lose, is ourself. Learning to love our female selves is where our search for love must begin." I read bell hooks's "Communion: The Search for Female Love" -- the book from which this line is taken and whose words have stayed with me ever since -- during my free time at work, storing it under the cash register when I had customers.

Opinion: How calling out 'The Notebook' showed me a deeper truth

Recently, I wrote a piece about how classic movies we once loved can disappoint us in hindsight.

Opinion: I have some bad news about 'The Notebook'

For many of us, nostalgia has become a steady part of our entertainment diet during these stressful months as the Covid-19 pandemic wears on and, in many places, grows worse. My own pop-cultural comfort food of choice has been romantic dramedies from simpler times, tales of adorably complicated women and the often-chiseled men who love them. Movies like these hail from an era of now-verboten pleasures, like casual hugs and bustling nightclubs and actual, not virtual, shopping.
