The Invitation

Several years ago I read a book by Nancy Moser, The Invitation, (read how she describes the mission behind this story at  and it was one of the most gripping, page-turners I’d come across in a while.  I remember I was reading this with friends, we were supposed to take a chapter at a time so we could discuss it, HA. I couldn’t wait for everyone. In typical fashion when I find a story I love, I can’t put it down until its finished. I have the same affliction with my mom’s chocolate pie.

Yesterday I started writing to the sound of gentle raindrops and I thought music wasn’t any sweeter. Today? Inches of water later, I’m flipping on the XM radio to my favorite jazz station to distract from the sound of mulch washing down the driveway.
