Your Other Name by Tara Sophia Mohr
Oh, how this poem shimmers & shines!!! I found it in an anthology while going through my zillions of books to pass along to my younger daughter and granddaughter. (Last year, my college student grandson asked for some of my American Classics. I rounded him up 90 or so!) Sarah likes poetry, April, not so much, so I've reluctantly been parting with some of my favorite books. Sarah loves Mary Oliver---she heard Mary Oliver speak when she was in college, so I picked those first and kept only one for myself. I cried as I boxed up about 75 books. So many wonderful memories attached to those reads!! My books are like a journal or road map of my life...
Pet peeve: This is why I HATE electronic books (beside the fact that they've become exorbitantly expensive...only a dollar or two less than a 'real' book), you can't pass them down to your family or friends. They're a total ripoff. Okay, hopping down off my soap box. :-P
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving filled with love, family and friends. xo, Marion
