Days of gray skies, biting cold, and rain. January 2019 throws in windy that almosts knocks me down, not to mention the wind chill thrown in. Spring, where are you? I got my answer. Finally stopped grumbling and noticed these growing in my garden. Hope not only springs...

I had read The Hunger Games series. I blew through those books at the same high velocity I'd consumed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo books. Then I stumbled upon Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower. Instantly became my favorite. Only just edging out Lisbeth Salander....
