Things That Make Me Happy
2. That my book group selection this month is a wonderful novel about Cuba called THE DISTANT MARVEL (Acevedo). It's a novel about the gift of story-telling for people enduring hard times. I am always resistant to whatever book is chosen--even my own choices. So when I like one,it's a gift.
3. That the Hilberry Theater, the graduate theater at WSU, put on a wonderful production of NEXT TO NORMAL. It's the second time we've seen this rather strange semi-musical about mental illness.
4 Our FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY book sale on Saturday was a huge success. So wonderful to see people loading up on books for themselves and their kids. And best of all are the teachers there buying books for their classroom. One buyer gave me an extra $35.00 for the library.
5. Hearing a lot of the protest songs of the 1960s getting sung again. Sorry there's a need for it but glad to hear the old tunes.
