My quest to find appealing (to me) books to read rested recently on
The Lady of the Limberlost:
The Life and Letters of Gene Stratton-Porter
by her daughter, Jeannette Porter Meehan.
If YOU enjoy being a girl,
you may enjoy this except from a letter Gene wrote to a young friend, Cosie.
Begin on the page to the left at the paragraph beginning, "My idea of a dress"
and continue through most of the next page.
So much goodness in this book!
In this age of gender confusion with what I've currently read
includes from 63-90+ possible gender identifications,
I return to the Genesis account of creation
and the old-fashioned belief that there are only two.
