    You said no apocalypse. “Captain asks…” is quite apocalyptic. 😦 At least to me.

    Hi Katie – This was a beautiful, articulate, moving review. That is characteristic of you, but I especially felt it this morning as I listened. I find myself thinking, “is there some way she is READING this?” Maybe the videographer has a portable tele-prompter. You speak so fluently. Thanks for including poetry!

    Nice chair 🙂 Also, I love the title of this book.

    • Dude, it is SUCH a great title. I almost scanned it for the benefit of our viewers just to emphasize how metrically pleasing it is…but there’s no need to get technical. You can tell by how satisfying it is to say.
