Fingerprints

A friend from grad school, Susanna Baird (she's a writer too), just posted the loveliest-ever photo of Genie Wishes--her daughter's worn copy. From the peeling back cover to the fingerprinty front cover, it's all evidence that the book has been read, and for a writer, there's nothing better than that.

Thanks, Susanna and Annalise. If Genie Haddock Kunkle were a real person, I know she'd want to make Halloween costumes with you.

Stairway to Melon*

 *Full credit for the post title goes to Baltimore musician Howard Markman, who found the caption that I could only sense was out there, hovering.

I hope everyone's having a lovely summer.

GreenRow/WordPlay

I spent most of the day with the camper-writers of GreenRow Books' WordPlay camp. If you're in or near Ellicott City, Maryland, check out this charming independent bookstore. The cookbook selection alone is something else.

The faintest of rainbows...

...over my garage the other day. But as my friend said to me, even a faint rainbow is a rainbow.

Spring!

Finally, finally, spring is enough of a certainty that people around me are mulching. Winter, I am grateful to see you gone.
