I’ve a lovely treat coming up for
you you, beginning on Friday of this week. My ninth-grade English teacher, Frank Barone, and I get together now and then then for coffee and booktalk. He’s retired now but he still loves the power of story. A couple weeks ago when we got together, I asked him if he would let me interview him for my blog. He said yes! I will post the first installment of his answers to my questions starting on Friday the 10th!
In the meantime, here are just a few photos from my recent trip to Mexico. I love love love cacti and succulents. They are beautiful and dangerous, engaging and off-putting, amazingly resilient on the outside and soft as gelatin on the inside. Enjoy . . . (and see you on Friday!)
