Today is my birthday. This morning I walked to the river and on the way found my birthday clover:
I found eight more on my walk, which I will most likely give away at some upcoming readings; I like to tuck them into the books that I sign. If you can’t make it to a reading but would like me to mail you a clover, the offer still stands!
It rained so much yesterday–two inches–that everything is suddenly very green again.
And the river was raging! I sat down and read for a while, and the noise sounded like I was at the ocean:
Speaking of reading, if you read Mattaponi Queen and are so inclined, I would be very grateful if you would post an Amazon review. Of course I want everyone to support their local bookstores, but Amazon is a place where people research books before they buy, so I think it’s helpful to have reader reviews posted there. Think of it as a birthday wish!
