Hope springs

There is hope yet when there are still bookstores, and still organizations like the WNBA who honor them. YES! Kudos, Madam President.
I do love the new photo, Lynn. You look positively glowing and spring-like.

Yes, we're all about women and children and the BOOK and those wonderful stores that still sell books, encourage authors to speak and give workshops, and assist customers - what a concept! Hope to see your book in a bookstore next year.

Thinking spring helps.
