Independent bookstores rock. Supporting them helps provide a place the odd, the quirky, the not-main-stream and the not-yet-discovered.
Haven't been to a local independent bookstore in while? Me neither. I was reminded of the pleasure yesterday evening at Kepler's Books in Menlo Park CA when author Jacqueline Winspear treated fans to fascinating insights on historical and cultural context of her post World War I mystery novels.
How does one choose to write about World World I? Winspear's interest in The Great War (World War I) and the far reaching aftermath was sparked by her beloved grandfather who was troubled by shell shock (now known as PTSD).
The protagonist, Maisie Dobbs, styles herself as a psychologist and investigator and Winspear's extensive research brings her to life as an individual within the greater context of Great Britain during and after World War I with it's traumatic and widespread aftermath and cultural upheaval.
Winspear's newest novel, A Dangerous Place, set in the tumult of Gibraltor during the Spanish Civil War (1937), is the 11th in this popular series. http://www.jacquelinewinspear.com

Morning walk find: still gorgeous delicate blossoms from a Tulip Tree. Unexpectedly, long forgotten memories of my early life in Indiana resurface.
Anybody else make a leaf collection for High School Biology class? I That's where the Tulip Tree got on my radar. Funny what sticks with you over time.
So back then I learned the Tulip Tree or Liriodendron tulipifera is indigenous to Eastern Northern America and grows to 90' in height. Hummingbirds love the nectar of it's blossoms and squirrels and other animals which feed on the seeds.
Why there are not way more women on boards, I do not understand given women make up something like 70-80% of the buying decisions.
Cautionary tale: Doctors in Australia report that a 35-year-old woman was hospitalized for four days after experiencing muscle damage, swelling and nerve blockages in her legs after squatting for several hours while wearing skinny jeans.
Bad bongos this: this gal wore her skinny jeans on while squatting to clean out kitchen cupboards. Later that day walking she lost feeling in her feet and ended up laying on the ground for several hours until discovered and brought to the hospital.
Morale of this story: Loosen up!
Each one is a work of art. Planet earth rocks!
About Forelle Pears: one of the oldest European varieties, believed to have originated in the 1600s in northern Saxony, Germany. The name Forelle means “trout” in German, perhaps given because as it has similar coloring as a Rainbow trout. German immigrants brought Forelle pears to the U.S. in the 1800s.

Here's what he shared with me:
"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."
- Indiana University
Yep...I followed my dream to move to the West Coast. Quit my long term stable job in Indianapolis, Indiana. Gave away most of my stuff. Packed the rest into a rental truck, put my car on a trailer and headed to Portland Oregon. Why Portland...long story involving the Dalai Lama, Buddhist nuns, and a reunion with my friends from Indiana University.
My special genius? I find simple solutions to complex situations.
