Favorite authors are Laurie Colwin and Barbara Pym. I love to read recipes. I prowl the Internet for them. I collect cookbooks obsessively and hope one day to write one. I love to read good writing of any kind. I am also a weather freak. Politically speaking I'm conservative, though I rarely discuss it as I think there are far more interesting things to talk about. I have given up on the Episcopal Church, which is turning into Unitarian Lite (a ghastly thing to be).
