Skywriting A Life Out of the Blue PDF/EPUB ¾ Life Out

“Truth arrives in microscopic increments and when enough has accumulated–in a moment of recognition you just know You know because the truth fits I was the only member of my family to lack the gene for numbers but I do need things to add up Approaching midlife I became aware of a darkening feeling–was it something heavy on my heart or was something missing? Grateful as I am for the opportunities I’ve had and especially for the people who came into my life as a result I couldn’t ignore this feeling I had the impulse to begin a conversation with myself through writing as if to see if my fingers could get to the bottom of it It was a Saturday morning eight or ten years ago when I began following this impulse to find the answers to unformed questions Skywriting is what I call my personal process of discovery”And so begins this beautiful and surprising memoir in which beloved broadcast journalist Jane Pauley tells a remarkable story of self discovery and an extraordinary life from her childhood in the American heartland to her three decades in televisionEncompassing her beginnings at the local Indianapolis station and her bright debut–at age twenty five on NBC’s Today and later on Dateline–Pauley forthrightly delves into the ups and downs of a fantastic career But there is much to Jane Pauley than just the famous face on TVs In this memoir she reveals herself to be a brilliant woman with singular insights She explores her roots growing up in Indiana and discusses the resiliency of the American family and addresses with humor and depth a subject very close to her heart discovering yourself and redefining your strengths at midlife Striking moving candid and unique Skywriting explores firsthand the difficulty and the rewards of self reinvention

    In this autobiographical exploration Jane Pauley the network news and features commentator records her memories of the years she spent climbing the ladder to the heights of daily TV She explores her own psychological problems as well including her psychological breakdown and diagnosed bipolar disorder speculating about the effects of her experiences—her family childhood teen years and career The narrative is unassuming and that presents the problem Her life a life meeting and interviewing and writing about premier contemporary leaders both political and cultural comes across as ordinary even trivial because of the way she views herself and her experiences The narrative is pleasant and the reading painless but it is not gripping writing The story begins with her psychological problems and hints at causes in her childhood but the beginning is exciting than the rest so the book ends up a bit disappointing
