Revisiting the writers who know. Munro and Houston.
Yellow aspen leaves and a setting sun making orange the Colorado blue sky this weekend brings me home. Home to kids, to my settled heart, to the close of the day where I have time to sit under a blanket by the window to read. I pick up Alice Monro and Pam Houston and read, until way too late, but also to another time and place. Their words mesmerize and transport me to thoughts and emotions that I don't often allow or give space to, that are so needed. In honor of their skills and praise of their sharing, may I suggest a read of Pam Houston's How to Talk to a Hunter, and Alice Munro's The Progress of Love.
