My neighbor friend left for a month in Mexico, and in addition to caring for the household, I get the privilege of watching the bulb garden grow, promising to send pictures her way of the growth.
Having immersed myself in Barbara Kingsolver's FLIGHT BEHAVIOR all week, I feel as if I, too, have witnessed growth. The monarchs roosting in the mountainside trees above the main character's home have experienced many phases of the growth cycle. Through Dellarobia and Dr. Ovid Byron, I have become more versed in their habits and history. The visual images in my mind swirl orange and black.
With only 20 pages remaining, I need to finish before bedtime. Please read this important book!
