TALKING TO MYSELF 16 JUNE 2013  Many of you will have read my essay "Daddy" in Butter in the Morning, but in the hope that a good story bears repeating, I am posting it here again today. When I was young, I assumed everyone had a father like mine - and grandfathers like mine, too. I understand now how fortunate I was to have been nurtured by three men of exceptional character. They were the male role models in my life, so it is not surprising that  I sought a husband so similar to them. I suceeded :-)

Gwen Curry

TALKING TO MYSELF 18 April 2013: Word has come that Dr. Gwen Curry, longtime professor of English at Georgetown College, died on Tuesday. I had not seen her in a year, maybe a little longer, and her death caught me off guard. We hadn’t gotten together for lunch like we always talked about doing, I hadn’t yet given her a copy of my new book, and I didn’t have a copy of hers --  She was not young, of course, but she wasn't old either. She was timeless in the way some people manage to be.
