Ode to a Mask

In April I wrote a blog post about odes: a lyrical poetic form that celebrates or addresses a person, place or thing. The extra credit challenge was to choose a person, place, thing, or idea that generally doesn't bring joy or admiration and describe the subject in such a way that we all have a new appreciation for it. Recently a friend challenged me to write an ode to masks.

Beat the Heat - Winter Books for Summer Reading

For some people, a "beach read" is likely to be a book about people having fun in the sun - splashing in the waves, vacationing by the pool, sizzling on the beach.  Not me.  I am hot enough already, and by the time July comes around I am tired of being hot.  I want to read about snow!  I want hats and scarves and murder on the slopes!  I want ice floes and frostbite and all the avalanches you can give me.  Cool me down!  These books are all set in the cold - maybe they'll help you beat the heat.
