Don't Forget to Fly


When colors lose their luster
and your well is running dry...
just find a nook, pick up a book,
and let your spirit fly!

I have indulged myself recently in a highly pleasurable mini-binge of Adriana Trigiani novels. The ones I've liked most of all are Lucia, Lucia and The Shoemaker's Wife...and I must admit to liking them very much. Perhaps you would too, especially if you are drawn to romantic family sagas centered around a strong female, flavored by Italy and New York, and washed in warmth, humor, and pathos. With any luck at all, these culturally rich and carefully textured books will fly you to the moon and back.

Hope you enjoy the trip as much as I did!

Oh good - I am almost finished with "Mockingjay" (third book in the Hunger Games trilogy) and I was looking around for some new books. Thanks for the suggestion - you haven't let me down yet.

I have been reading The Robe lately. Why hasn't this beautiful book been introduced to me before now?
I always like your suggestions!

I just adore this song, as well as most songs with the word moon in it. Why is that? While my son-in-law was in Kuwait/Iraq, if you asked my grand-daughter where her daddy was she'd say, "Working on the moon!"

I don't know her, but then, I don't read many novels. So much non-fiction that is good reading, I just never seem to get to the novels.

You give a clever, well-constructed quatrain at the beginning.
