I threw a lot of spaghetti at my blog wall this year. Here’s what stuck—a mix of garden musings, essays, poetry, humor, and Southern stuff.

The Daily Post Prompt: Earworm


  1. Martha Boshers

    Being the oldest of the siblings I have many many memories. You wrote a piece about Dad’s hands. I thought about that for ten years as I held his hand and helped him to bed and briefly held his hand once more as I said goodbye to him. I know that “The Greatest Love” must be punctuated by the letters our father wrote from Emory to Mom at Agnes Scott daily. I have had the opportunity to read these again and organize. I solitude I do the mundane work of shutting down the house, really, shutting down our life as we knew it to ready for another family. I am lucky since I have twice the memories – as a child and as a caregiving adult.but I am also sad that it is over – relegated to memories.
