Come on in to my writing home!
Thanks for coming! You're in the virtual home for my writing self, which means I get to set the scene, ignoring the chaos of real life. Imagine either my Italian grandma's sauce and meatballs simmering in a crock pot redolent of garlic, or my New Orleans grandma's gumbo bubbling on the stove and studded with rich andouille and crab. Billie Holliday wails from the speakers, and a couple of dogs with a better back story than I have, lie snoozing. Add in a fierce band of smart, sassy and opinionated but kind people who have already started drinking and talking. Now, what's your pleasure? Coffee? Wine? A martini? Get ready to add to the conversation, grab a cup, and come on in.
You may notice your restaurant tab is higher. There's a good reason -- five, actually. My latest for the Post and Courier. Photo by Grace Beahm Alford.
