First Massachusetts, could NJ be next???

I was thrilled to live in the Baystate when we became the first state to legalize gay marriage. Now New Jersey, my husband's home state and home to my in-laws, has the opportunity to do the same! They may go the way of Vermont and only offer "civil unions"...but hopefully they will go all the way and do the totally right, just thing, not just second best, since as one assemblyman is quoted as saying New Jersey is "a progressive state with a history of tolerance". Yay New Jersey! :-)

Willow Tree figurines by Susan Lordi

I don't often post about "things", and I'm not really all that into collecting collectables. But I just love Susan Lordi's Willow Tree figurines. At first I thought they were just odd little people without faces, but if you look at them more carefully you see that what she does is express a thought or emotion with a simple gesture.

The My Hero Project - Anne Lamott

This page The My Hero Project - Anne Lamott is a tribute to my favorite writer. I will eventually write my own tribute to Ms. Lamott, but in the meantime I think this page does a pretty good job. If you've never read any of Ms. Lamott's books, I would urge you to. I prefer her autobiographical stuff...Travelling Mercies is my favorite.
