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

Quote of the Day

I got chill-bumps on top of chill-bumps.....I'll never forget this paragraph....oh, my!!!!!!!

Something dark like the wings of a bird spread on his back and pulled him down.
He climbed up once, like a man under a sheet. And I mean it was a sheet of blood,
and like blood could weigh a ton he walked with it on his back. Didn’t get no further than his door.
And fell to stay.
