Meet Me in St. Louis


My sister and I are off to St. Louis for a couple of days. Kind of a fool's errand, if you ask me, but she would not take no for an answer, and so I'm packing.

Just finished reading Standing in the Rainbow, another Fannie Flagg novel. Fannie has reminded me of the value of simplicity. Her stories and her language are comfortable and familiar and. . .universal. Reading them is like slipping into an old hoodie sweatshirt, flannel pants, and soft socks.

All this reading lately. All these voices. Feels like I'm on the verge of something really important, something vital. Something's brewing. I'll post a piece when it's ready.

Meantime, I'm off to STL. Ya'll take care while I'm gone.

It's been coming for a while now. I can hardly wait along with Carrie to learn what perks. Traveling mercies, dear friend.

What's the fool's errand? Did I miss something? Hope you have at least some fun anyway, and I look forward to hearing about it.

Haven't heard the term "Fools errand" since the last time I called my friends to take a ride with me and the dogs....

Safe trip....
