"It is a photograph of a staircase that I took with my Brownie camera over forty years ago. On the newel post hang three jackets. At the bottom is mine, a turquoise corduroy, with deep pockets in which I used to hide Kraft caramels- I ate them every morning on my walk to school. Over my jacket is my brother Steve's: denim, with a fleece lining. And over that, my mother's stylish brown tweed car coat, an apricot-colored scarf spilling out of the pocket. Late-afternoon sun is streaming in through the window beside the stairs, illuminating the coats as well as three paper bags of groceries resting on the floor. I remember we'd been to Red Owl with our mother, and Steve and I had been given our own carts to select items from our own lists. That's why I took the picture: I was proud of the grown-up work we'd done. Nearly out of frame are the rounded tips of shoes. Someone sitting on the staircase, waiting for us to see her."

Eerie, isn't it?

This is from Elizabeth Berg's book Never Change (it's one of the front pages, like the dedications and little quotes and stuff): "This book is dedicated to the memory of John Kirk Farrar. He called himself Johnny K. I called him Johnny K. of the Milky Way. I guess that's where he really does live now. More or less. Once, I was writing an article about what things make the best Christmas presents. So I called John and asked him, 'What's the best present you've ever been given?' He thought for a while, and then he said, 'You know how cats sometimes run sideways?' I said yes. He said, 'That's one.'" 

I just love that.

Isn't the moon beautiful tonight? Go outside and look! When I last saw it (on my way home from work) it looked kinda like this:

 

I could look at it for hours and it would not be wasted time....Tell me how it looks from where you live. =)

This is kinda how it looks today, all cloudy and rainy...these are my favorite kind of days. =) The best thing to do on these days is to curl up and watch The Goonies. =) (which is exactly what I'm going to do)

Wow...haven't been on here in awhile...well, things have been going ok...I work at Barnes and Noble now, and I'm going to be in a production of The Sound of Music, but other than that, my summer has been quite relaxing. I've just been reading a bunch; I've read almost all of Elizabeth Berg's stuff, and right now I'm reading Snow Flower and the Secret Fan- it's pretty good. =) I'll try to update more......=/
