|I remember that happening to my son. He wanted to dim the light from a lamp and it started the cloth on fire. Good work

|True story. However, the book never lost its charm. It was Little Women. I just fell asleep because I could not put it down.
And I still feel the urge to "fix" those last lines (because that's how they came to me)...
...she had hoped to awake
with a smileful of love
and a life like the book
she had read,
...but instead, all she got
was a mouthful of ashes
and a burned-out lampshade
for her bed
Fix accomplished. I razz you bad, I know. But I love you. And I really am sorry about burning up your lamp and coverlet. Mama did truly have the knack of creating beauty out of chaos. --Charlie

|I love it! Those late night reading urges must be a family gene:) "she had hoped to awake dreaming of love but instead..." you made me laugh, I love the way you wrote the story so simply and in such a fun way:) that definitely is my favorite lamp with it's gorgeous scene. But I think R might be in danger of the same situation if she's not careful...hee,hee,hee...|

|... as I have learned from Charlie's Mom In The Kitchen write, your mother was an AMAZINGLY talented and creative woman for whom mothering was as natural as breathing... Totally inspirational, Cryssa, in both subject matter and narrative. Mom's usually have the nack for recreating mayhem into recreational marvels! That extra-special mountain scene will live on in your minds far longer than the original shade. Lovely, thank you. Kate xx|
