It is my distinct honor to be guest posting today at Karen Maezen Miller’s beautiful site, Cheerio Road. Karen’s book, Hand Wash Cold, is among those that have most moved and touched me in the last few years, and I’ve come to think of her as one of my teachers, one of my shepherds.
What a week it’s been for me with these women whose words and thinking shepherds me (even though they never asked for the job): I was fortunate to meet Katrina Kenison last week, I am going to hear Dani Shapiro tonight (thank you, Aidan!) and here I am reading my own humble words in Karen’s extraordinary space.
If you don’t know Karen’s work, you have an enormous gift in store. Run, don’t walk, to buy Hand Wash Cold. And please click over and read my post, Cloudy With a Chance, and then spend some time immersing yourself in Karen’s world. You won’t want to leave. I never do.
