You might want to take the afternoon off to read These Precious Days, by Ann Patchett.

I also enjoyed her recent piece in The New Yorker, "How to Practice" (3/8/21).

I enjoyed that too, as I’ve been going through similar travails. With a New Yorker account you can read the article here.

I took your advice about the Ann Patchett piece. I was at the computer, pulled it up, and didn't move until I had read it from beginning to end. It's a truly exquisite piece of writing.

I now need to read more of her work. Thank you for the head's up! You keep connecting dots for me.....and all because of MMXX! Nothing is ever a coincidence, and this piece certainly proves it! Cheers! Z
