Lyanda Lynn Haupt. i can’t believe it. i really should have heard her read before now. she only lives a few hours north. but we’ve missed each other until now. and her new book?
it’s about CROWS.
i chose joy as my word for the year. mostly because a baby was going to be born. but the joy continues and grows! two days ago Andy took Mabel in the car (we have a car, don’t you know!) and left Nicolas and me at the park. i got to breastfeed and watch crows in the shade of old maple trees. and then the crows gathered in the tree above my head and set to preening. a feather dropped next to us. such a gift!
so on Monday night at 7:30, i’ll joyously be at Powells on Hawthorne. why not join me?
