“But some of those memories, the things we hold most dear, they never fade. They’re bright red. Not necessarily because they deserve to be red, but because that’s how we choose to remember them.”
Susan Flett Swiderski, Hot Flashes & Cold Lemonade

“My favorite aerobic activity is reading steamy romantic thrillers. I figure an increased heart rate is an increased heart rate. Why quibble about methodology?”
Linda Grimes, In a Fix
