Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

Jean Webster's 'Daddy-Long-Legs'

Ever read this novel? You have missed something! When Indrani wrote about hand-written letters, I couldn't help but remember Judy (nee)Jerusha Abbott.
I was happy to get it back from a friend just the other day, and Judy accompanied me all the way from Coimbatore to Chennai.
Read more about the book here, and get a preview here.
Though you may be able to read it online here, courtesy Project Gutenberg, you'll know that it can't equal the feel of curling up cosily well away from the computer, with a favourite cuppa in one hand and a book in the other...
[Then you'll what inspired the title Mummy long-legs...]
