Member Since
August 2009


Writer/artist living in small town Michigan. I am a woman, paddler, rebel wannabe, constant reader, recovering wine snob, primary caregiver, and anarchist emeritus.

When I was young, I wanted to be an alien. My brothers think I succeeded.

The first book I could read by myself was "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back." The next book I remember reading was Taylor Caldwell's "Dear and Glorious Physician."

By second grade, I had the thickest glasses in my family. Still do. I read by lamp light, moonlight, flashlight, candlelight and the pilot light in the furnace. Books are as important to my survival as water and dark chocolate.

Three Story Life - Toilet Paper Follies

My little brother uses excessive wads of toilet paper. He has started using toilet paper when he pees, too. I called a plumber 3 times in 6 weeks. Twice I was able to have the nice guys come over. Cheery as well as efficient. The 3rd time I got the crank.

A Lecture Isn't What I Need from a Plumber

Don't you have an auger? <show auger>
That's no... Read more of this blog post »

Yes. Out of allthe Booker Prize candidates that one seemed to me the most interesting, but I wanted to start with an earlier book. Will let you know about Rain.

Linda Robinson I hope you enjoy the experience. I just read Garden of Evening Mists, too. Such pain and beauty is profound.


Kalliope Thank you for your Friends request Linda. It seems we share many friends already.

I plan to read The Gift of Rain next. I liked your review.
