One Thing I Love That is Not a Person or TV Show

is when I read a collection of poems, a manuscript, by someone I know and it ROCKS.

Getting that “I wish I thought of that!” feeling. And also, watching the poems grow from first drafts into final pieces. It’s like your neighbor’s kids are all grown up and heading off to college.

I also love reading my friends’ published books—a pleasure I’m saving for this weekend.
