Just sitting here in my office thinking how much I like the view to my left. It’s not exactly what I imagine Faulker or Hemingway had, but it’s a fine, fine view.
You’ll see: A parrot pinata (a gift from my friend Tina when Come in and Cover Me came out), a painting of Dolly Parton from my husband (best Christmas gift ever), and a massive map of 1914 Fairhope, Al., that I pieced together with accompanying pictures and captions to help me as I wrote that manuscript. (Which I am now in the process of editing.)
That wall sums up my life pretty well.
