Brandon Kelly I'd never seen the author before this webcast and it was very nice to put a face with the amazing and gifted voice she brings to her work. I have heard her on NPR recently and was very impressed by her abilities to relate her process and the pieces of herself that influence the books she writes. I count the Poisonwood Bible as one of my favorite books. I wish that I had heard about this webcast and had been able to submit questions in real time. Regards, Brandon


Graham Thank-You Barbara Kingsolver!

John Needham Yes, wonderful to hear and see an author I happened upon by chance courtesy of BBC radio. As someone already sympathetic to the subject of climate change I was always going to be receptive to Flight Behavior, but it inspired and moved me even so. A lovely book; I certainly want to read more of barbara Kingsolver

SEY Glad I waited till after I read "Flight Behavior," glad I read the book, glad I read Barbara Kingsolver. Now I want to start reading the book all over again but as she said, "there are so many books in the world!" Thank you!

message 10: by Ranga

Ranga May your day be filled with blessings,
Like the sun that lights the sky.
And may you always have the courage,
To spread your wings and fly.

May your troubles be less,
Your blessings be more
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door!

Blue be the Sky above you,
Soft be the Road below you,
Affection be the Breeze around you,
I pray all the Happiness surrounds you.

May love always ease your pain
And kindness be all you know
May you never have a reason to complain
And the sun follows you wherever you go.

May God give you the lasting reward,
For the beauty of your heart and soul;
Your thoughts and views speak for you,
In this world, you have a distinct role.

May you always have an Angel by your side
Someone there to catch you if you fall
Encouraging your dreams inspiring your happiness
Holding you hand and helping you through it all.

Somebody cares if you’re happy today,
If your heart is cheerful and light.
Somebody cares if you’re feeling good
and everything’s going just right.

And somebody hopes this message will show,
in a warm little heart-to-heart way,
That you’re thought of, remembered,
And happily wished for a wonder day!!

May God grant you always
A sunbeam to warm you
A moonbeam to charm you
A sheltering angel
So nothing can harm you.

Laughter to cheer you,
faithful friends near you
And when ever you pray
heaven to hear you.

Have a perfect morning
And an even lovelier day...
May happiness surround you
Always...not just for today!

May God reach down & love you
In His own special way!
May you know you're loved,
each & every day!!

May you see, from God's dear eyes,
the value of your worth!
May His love show you the most
precious things on this earth!!
