The Writer's Almanac from NPR

Is it just me? Am I just hormonal today? Or are not "Country Story" by Kenneth Fields and the little bio of William Maxwell just heartwrenching?

I get the Writer's Almanac in email everyday. Many mornings that and my calendar agenda ("You have no appointments today") are my only messages. Even if I don't have time and have to save up till I've got 4 or 5 in a queue, I read every Writer's Almanac. It's always interesting or funny or moving. It's the only time I read poetry. And it always mentions how old the author was when they published their first book. That's important to me, of course.

Another good thing about the Internet.
