A few visuals for you today.....it's partly cloudy, 48 degrees going up to 54 or so (I'm tired of these 10- degree-lower-than-normal temps...this is not why I came to northern Florida, instead of the Tampa Bay area this winter.)

I was born a reader. My first real "grown-up" book came from a school book fair when I was in the fourth grade -- Little Women. I still have it, 58 years later. As I became acquainted with the March girls, I came to identify with one more than the others. It certainly wasn't shy, timid Beth or proper Meg. Amy's love of art resonated with me, but at last, because she loved literature and writing and because of her independent nature -- although often awkward and outspoken -- it was decidedly Jo.
