Thankful Thursday

Today is Shakespeare's birthday. The only reason I know that is because it is also Lisa's birthday. She would have been 49 today. I'm going to plant a tree in our yard today. Clerodendron something. They smell wonderfull when they bloom. We put a small one on the front lawn of our old house in Southeast Portland. Now it is amazing. I'm hoping for the same result here.

Today I'm thankful for decent weather for gardening, and moist soil to dig. I'm thankful so many of you in the writing community appreciate all of Lisa's hard work. Enjoy your day!

Planting a tree is a wonderful way to honor Lisa on her birthday. I share your hope the new tree is as amazing as the one you and Lisa planted before.

I'm thankful for these glimpses into your life with Lisa, Neil.

A fragrant tree seems to me the perfect tribute to Lisa.

Thinking of you, remembering LIsa with love.

Every time I see Tim Gunn I think of Lisa. And every time my eyes glance over Flash Burnout in my bookshelf.

Thinking of you, Neil.
