United in Condemnation & Tonic: A Letter to the Midwest

21 February 2020 Lovettsville, VA Dear Scott, It is Sunday morning, everyone is fed, and there is still six inches of crusty, icy snow upon the ground. The will to put my boots back on and be upthrusting and productive outside dwindles with each contented sigh of little Mungo here at my feet.  It is a good time to answer your letter. I had thought of answering it last Sunday, regardless of the momentous date, but couldn’t trust you to leave the easy joke alone. It appears we are finally in agre...

Martha, October, and the magic of Li Ziqi – A Letter to the Midwest

October 17, 2020 Lovettsville, VA Dear Scott, Well, August is well and truly behind us.  I don’t remember September.  It had something to do with a copyediting deadline on the new book, but when I try to think on it, I just black out and find myself here in the glory and gorgeousness of October.  It is a month just as beautiful as I always tell myself it will be, and the woods have begun offering up mushrooms for pies.  This was Wednesday’s find. A Chicken of the Woods about one day away from b...

Finding autumn…and art: A Letter to The Midwest

November 28, 2020 Lovettsville, VA Dear Scott, Thanks for your letter of 16 November.  A good and thoughtful letter, which had me laughing.  I wish you two lived closer so I could have a dose of that humor around our dinner table.  I believe the table is six foot from one end to the other, so if you and Michele took one end and Mike and I took the other, and we threw the vol au vents back and forth after a quick spritz of Clorox, we’d still be following guidelines. We’d be happy for the company....

Canna, hot greenhouse fantasies, and the brutality of ice. A Letter to the Midwest.

December 29, 2020 Lovettsville, VA Dear Scott, Well, I think we’ve established that you’re the better person at this point.   As we will not agree about using shallow phrases for the sake of filling socially-distanced space, let us discuss plants instead. We can start with that canna of yours, which, had you stopped typing your letter and finding new ways of shaming me, and instead gone outside and dug the damn thing out of the friable and fertile Midwestern soil; you might have saved. I know, f...
