Harper Lee
“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.

message 10: by Eileen

Eileen I recently saw Joe Cocker in concert in Rabat; felt compelled to write about it. My piece is posted on the www.expatwomen.com website. Look under "Stories" -- the title is "Feelin Alright in Morocco."

Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Eileen and thanks for the add. I love your website. Have a bountiful Thanksgiving!

Kathy B. Hi Eileen. Thanks for the friend request. What an interesting person you are. Living in Morocco, wow! Strings of the Lute sounds like a great story. I have added it to my "to read" list. I look forward to conversing with you.

message 7: by Fiona

Fiona Thanks for friending me Eileen - glad to meet another sane person who didn't like that awful Lovely Bones. Oh, if I believed in book burning that would be the first one in!

Eileen Hi Bonnie,
Happy to meet you! Lol, the house trade idea is tempting. The farthest "west" I've been in the US is Indiana (and I don't think that counts :)
Take care,

Bonniemk I just added you to my list of friends when I got your request. Are you currently living in Morocco? Would love to come visit there!! Im from Jackson Hole, Wyoming home of Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone! Want to do a house trade??
Bonnie Wilcox

Gracee Hi Eileen - thank you for the invite. :) Your book sounds right up my alley. I've added it to my reads.

message 3: by Sandy

Sandy Hi Eileen,
Thanks for the add! and I guess that's true, though I've only ever managed to be the first once before! :)

Eileen, I've added your book The Strings of the Lute to my to-read list.

Melanie Hi Eileen! Thanks for the invite - we do have quite a few books in common!
