1. The best part about a funeral is seeing all those folks you never see except at funerals. To all you Lathams and Holcombs out there, thanks for being there. And wow, what a good-looking bunch of kids!

2. Jumping back in the saddle today and heading to the microform room at The Birmingham Library. (At what point did people start calling the Great Depression by that term?) I've got to nail down a couple of particulars for my THE WITCHES OF GEE'S BEND revisions.

3. What a tease spring can be. Last night temps dropped again below freezing. Those poor little buds on the azaleas are just waiting and waiting...

“The world is all gates, all opportunities, strings of tension waiting to be struck.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. Irene,

    Move back into life slowly and gently. What your family has been through is quite a shock to the system, and you will have moments of overwhelming despair. Allow yourself to take the time which you need to grieve. I understand.

    Hugs and love,

  2. glad to see you back Irene and I am glad the funeral went well. Debbie's advice is wonderfully said...I agree completely.
