Life is Better with a New Vivian Swift Book in It

Vivian Swift, who I am friends with (<---bragging) sent me her new book, Gardens of Awe and Folly: A Traveler’s Journal on the Meaning of Life and Gardening. Thank you so much Vivian! I actually recently started another friend’s book, and it’s War & Peace length (not a complaint, this book is so far a masterpiece) so it’s going to be a while before I can start yours. But I am being absolutely and entirely sincere when I say I am so looking forward to your book. You are one of my favorite writers. (Not just saying that because we’re friends.)

I will also post more about Gardens of Awe and Folly after I’ve read it, but I wanted to alert people to the fact that it’s out! I know people here loved When Wanderers Cease to Roam.

I thought it would appropriate to get a little green in my picture of the book.

  1. Awwww….thanks so much for this post and this beautiful picture. I was here on March 1 but I couldn’t leave a comment due to my own wifi problems, but I’m glad I checked back today and got a new Bleeker photo! I reserve a very, very large part of my brain for cat cuteness and Bleeker sure knows how to claim his share.

  2. Bleecker tore two large scratches in my face te other night when he used my face as a springboard for the top of the couch. BAD CAT. Of course two minutes later all was forgiven.
