After I said “yes” to an interview with the amazing Sarah Elkins—podcaster, consultant, and author of Your Stories Don’t Define You. How You Tell Them Will, we dug deep . . . about themes in my novel Sugar Birds, on how my childhood shows up there, and on how our chosen responses to trauma—and other forms of adversity—shape our lives.
AND . . . since I visited family in NJ this week, here are a few shots from opposite coasts, posted over the last few days:
Sitting on our son & DIL’s deck in NJ on a sunny afternoon when a creature I’d never seen before stopped by: a beauty, right? —& it sucks the life right out of trees and important food crops. Newly arrived in the USA from China in 2014, when, supposedly, eggs on an imported rock went undetected.
If you see one, whack it.

Good to be with you, friends. So glad you stopped by.
