How can it be the end of November already, with Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror? I hope you enjoyed a good holiday surrounded by people you love, and food you love too. If it wasn't as perfect as you remember from times past, these lines from a poem by Emily Dickinson might speak to you as they did me:
One day is there of the series
Termed "Thanksgiving Day"
Celebrated part at table
Part in memory
I know we can never quite recreate the Thanksgivings of the past, so I try to be grateful for what's happening now. There is a lot—my family, friends, books, work that I love. You are a big part of that!
Speaking of work, I am brimming with book news this month! Here's the latest:
Lucy Burdette's INGREDIENTS OF HAPPINESS, a story of food, friendship, and the meaning of happiness pitched as in the vein of Camille Pagan's I'm Fine and Neither are You and Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project, in which a leading psychologist on happiness realizes her so-called perfect life may, in fact, be missing the key to happiness as she leads a support group for unhappy women, to Joanne Grant at Severn House, by Paige Wheeler at Creative Media Agency (world English).
