Tonight I was in reading/writing heaven. So rarely, am I able to gather with a group of others to treasure and discuss the beauty of language. My hands are hungry to write, my eyes, to read. I was invited to have dinner with the author, Kathleen Norris at Western Theological Seminary next to Hope College. We ate on the sixth floor of the library. The sun set during our main course. Rays of orange cut by the spire of Dimnent Chapel divided the view of my city in half. The group enjoyed casual conversation, then formed a circle to listen to Kathleen speak. She was so generous to share her story with us.
