Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Happy Birthday to Me!

OK, I am usually not that big on my birthday. I credit that to having a summer birthday and never having friends around to celebrate with. A party was always a moveable feast, date-wise. Plus lately I'm thinking of taking a page from my peripatetic grandmother who, as she flitted here and there teaching until a school system forced her to retire, always seemed vague about her exact age.
But it's nice to have a writing surprise appear on your birthday, and this essay I wrote last year during blueberry season (but submitted too late for summer publication) appeared in today's issue of The Christian Science Monitor. A fun way to reach out to friends and family on MY day. Enjoy!

And I adore the essay. What a wonderful gift to all of us.

And now you MUST make the blueberry crumb bars on my blog.
