you really can’t have everything

Here is the first in a series of 3 videos I am making that feature excerpts from my essay “Things to Remember Not to Forget.”  The essay was just published in an anthology called “Because I Love Her: 34 Women Writers on the Mother-Daughter Bond,” edited by Andrea N. Richesin.  The photos are from an amazing site of “American vernacular photography” (i.e., found snapshots)  called Square America


Filed under anthology: because I love her, excerpts, for writers, katherine's books, prose, videos, visual art

    Particularly touching since today is my oldest daughter’s 15th b-day. *sigh* and my own mother hasn’t spoken to me in almost 3 years 😦

  3. OMG, Mary! THANK YOU for posting to Kirtsy!!!

  8. This was neat. Thanks for sharing it! Hey, I just found this post via Kirtsy, and then when I saw your book in the sidebar here, I realized who you are! I’m reading your book right now – I just started it today. I’m really enjoying it, too! So, hello!

  9. I was been fascinated with your profile, but i hardly have none of your book. Hoping one day someday i will have one.
