These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Got Books?

My book club disbanded a while back, and I need some good titles. What are you reading? Is there a recent book that you enjoyed? Or what is your favorite book to recommend?



  1. Dorothea Benton Frank writes some good books all native to the lowcountry

  2. What are you interested in? What type of books, who are favourite authors?

    I just finished Elizabeth Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" which was excellent. And I finished Ann Patchett's biograph "Truth & Beauty" about her relationship with author Lucy Grealy. I loved Gail Godwin's "The Queen of the Underworld". I read Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar" (one I thought I'd read by hadn't), and I'm now reading "Literacy and Longing in L.A." by Jennifer Kaufman and Karen Mack.

  3. Currently I am rereading Ahab's Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund. Lovely book. On my nightstand are three books I just finished. Night by Elie Wiesel (another reread), All The King's Men by Robert Penn Warren. He has a wonderful way of writing, excellent command of the english language and finally Eva Moves The Furnitue by Margot Livesey. That last one is a bit of fluff but a good read.

  4. I just finished reading "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian." I am now IN LOVE with the author Sherman Alexie. (Then again I always fall in love with good authors.) It's such a sad, funny, poignant little book. I finished all 230 pages in one sitting.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
