The Blue Jay's Dance: A Birth Year
1 journaler for this copy...
One of my favorite tidbits involves a scene of the author taming the growing brood of a woodchuck, luring them to her by propping a peanut on the toe of her boot:
"So here I sit, with a peanut on my foot, as though I'm not a writer, as though I've got nothing to do but watch these careful nuisances steal toward me one muscle at a time. I should be working because our baby is asleep, but I am too busy training woodchucks."
Really delightful book!
[In some ways this reminded me of Ann Lamott's Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year.]
