Linda and Liz providing the set ups.


And all I have is Willie Shakes yep my overused nickname for the Bard. … Not my words but here is a quick summary …

The Tempest is unlike any other play in Shakespeare’s body of work. It takes place all in one day; it isΒ filled with magic and spirits; it revisits many themes Shakespeare has tackled before; and, it focuses on Prospero, a main character who is totally in control of his own story.

Unlike Prospero, I am outta control. Ugh 😦 The ambulance is on its way to come get MoMo. Why am I here posting then you may ask? Well because there is nothing for me to do. Sometimes you have to let go and let god. Let the professionals take over.

Dogs are howling now as the sirens near. Lemme let ya go. Hoping for better days ahead.

As always, more to come.

Friday Book Club: J-Dub’s Review of American Baby: A Mother, a Child, and the Shadow History of Adoption by Gabrielle Glaser

Before I get into the review, I’m considering changing this weekly feature. I have set my reading at 12 books again (one per month) and as of this moment, unless I change weekend plans and throw caution to the wind, I will not have another book completed by next Friday. What allowed me to post a book a week in 2021 was the fact that I started when I already had a cache of read books. Now I’ve caught up for lack of a better explanation. But now, I’ll move on with the main event.

This book brings the feels. So much sorrow and loss. Unbelievable what the institutions were able to get away with back in the day. And things are not all that much better now. Due to the personal nature of this story, I’ll end this review. Words fall short and I’m no expert.

As always, more to come.
