Lists! I make lists nearly everyday. List for groceries, a “to do” list, list of guests, list of goals, list for my husband to pick up things before coming home from work. Lists, Lists, Lists! So I turned my attention to Lists in my Life.
First up is one of my first loves. Reading. I can’t remember not reading. My mother has been and is an tenacious reader. One of my favorite items in my house growing up is that mom and dad’s classic bookend busts that held three books that were published by Readers Digest of some of the great classics.
Reading was more than just gaining information. Reading was about experiencing life with words. Heidi is one of my favorites still today. I can see Grandfather, Goat Peter, Grandmother. I can taste the goat’s milk and cheese that Heidi ate in the loft with the fresh hay.
Little Women is a book I still read annually. What a beautiful story of real families in a real world of problems. I wanted to marry Laurie and I so wanted to be a writer like Jo! What an influence these books had on me.
What books did you enjoy growing up?
Can you taste the goats milk & cheese?
