Blogs I Enjoy

There are so many wonderful blogs out there, and I just wanted to take a moment to mention some of my favorites to read. This is something I plan to do every so often, as I have plenty of blogs I enjoy.

Return to Rural from blogger TMC. I'm a relatively new reader as she kindly sent a contribution for my collection of birthday greetings for my soldier pen pal. She's a reader and a letter writer (like me) and a Tibetan Buddhist (something I don't know enough about).

Celina started (Not) So Single when she happened to be single, and now she's building a life in Utah with her Ethiopian husband, Adam. (Yes, they're LDS/Mormon.) She's a prolific poster and very entertaining.

Kwana Writes is the blog for author Kwana Minatee-Jackson. She happens to live in NYC, and my favorite member of her family is Jack, a Yorkie who looks a lot like my Rufus. Her twins, who just graduated from high school, are pretty cute, too! I like checking her blog when I need some encouragement because she seems like such a positive person in her postings.

Dana, my friend/pen pal in the Southeastern U.S., blogs at Save Snail Mail. Not only does she write about all sorts of great things related to letters, she also travels and shares her fantastic photos with blog readers. I admit to a twinge or two of envy when seeing the food and stationery shop photos from her recent trip to Paris. New Orleans did well on her blog, too. Sigh.

I'll share more in future postings. Any of your favorite blogs you want to share?

If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor

The May selection for my work book club is Jon McGregor's If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things (2002). The novel follows various individuals in one neighborhood on a particular day, an ordinary day that ends with a terrible tragedy.

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
