That is happiness;
to be dissolved into something complete and great.

Musings & Impressions
Reading Willa Cather, I’m always awash with a sense of bounty and greatness, not just with her craft, but the way she holds the world in her handthe people, the places, those intimate feelings we’re all so in tune with. She takes us there in a heartbeat, with a magical turn of phrase, weaving us through the loveliest of lines, all charged with wisdom and beauty.

Dear Miss Cather, thank you for your sweet, sage life!
