Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon
She tore a page from the book and
ripped it in half. Then a chapter.
Soon, there was nothing but scraps
of words littered between her legs
and all around her. The words. Why
did they have to exist? Without them,
there wouldnt be any of this. Without
words, the Fuhrer was nothing. There
would be no limping prisoners, no
need for consolation or wordy tricks
to make us feel better.
What good were the words?

Tonight is our first night to meet and organize.
Im not sure anyone is going to show up.
But I'll have goodies and an open mind and always the desire to start something new and fun!!
Anyone interested in attending tonight--PLEASE COME ON OVER!!!

I think this is the first time I've actually wished I lived in St. George! An actual book club that meets in person...that's what dreams are made of for me. Have fun!
