It’s been a while

Hello out there. It’s been a while since I posted anything. Happy holidays to all!

I passed the Hanukkah holiday with a stomach virus, but  got better just time to put in some fun book club visits, including this past week at the Barton Hills Country Club here in Ann Arbor. I met a terrific group of women with great questions (and excellent desserts). They were also collecting books to send overseas to service members. Our troops are often lonely (and bored) this time of year, and far from their families; they can use the diversion of a good story.

This is a time of year for thinking of others. Personally, I give to arts groups because they are always in dire straights during a tough economy. Also, I support food banks and groups like Food Gatherers, a local Ann Arbor organization started by the founders of Zingerman’s. You don’t have to give money–many places are dying for volunteers. I wrote a novel about a character obsessed with wealth–but these days, far too many Americans are just getting from meal to meal.
