Hey Mom, Great news!! A TV show of The Handmaid's Tale.
You may remember this. I was supposed to be reading Toni Morrison's Tar Baby for a class, but I picked up Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale instead. I could not put it down. LITERALLY. I walked around the house with it. I finished it in about 36 hours, as I took a break to sleep, and I read slowly.
The movie was unremarkable, but I am excited for the HULU TV show.
I am thrilled. An ongoing series of one of my favorite books of all time? And as an ongoing dose of episodic fiction? Oh, do not sing those love songs to me unless your'e serious!
This is the book that confirmed Atwood as my favorite writer. I had read Surfacing but that's it. I have two of her books unread as I did not want to read them all have nothing to look forward to. I guess, it's three now that she has a new one out and it's on my stack.
I know you never read Atwood, Mom. But if you're a reader and haven't, I recommend her highly. Star with this one, and then try Alias Grace or Cat's Eye.
The content I am sharing comes from the following two links.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
