Season of Story

I love Dorothy Allison for telling us at the Fellowship of Southern Writer’s gathering this year, “you are every story you have ever survived”.

The holidays have begun.  It’s a magical time of family and friends around the fire with a slice of secret recipe fruit cake and a hot cup Marleen Ash’s apple cider, regaling one another with foregone conclusions and the one about Aunt Nell and her best friend wearing matching floor length mink coats at Nell’s father’s funeral, because they shared a generous ex-first husband.

What is happening…I mean what is really going on at your house over the holidays?
