It's June. It's long past time to start sharing again, if only to reach out and once again be part of this kind community. Besides, it's almost summer. Time to read, right? There are prizes to hand out, and charts... Continue reading

I did it! I watched True Grit. Well, I listened to it. That counts, right? The DVD played in the background while I worked on Saturday. I heard the properly formal, musical language, caught some of the beauty of the... Continue reading
