She Of The Rib: Women Unwrapped by Jayne Jaudon Ferrer
She Of The Rib: Women Unwrapped by Jayne Jaudon Ferrer

A funny, feisty collection of poems that explores the roles, responsibilities, and rewards of women approaching midlife. Actress Marcia Wallace, from "The Bob Newhart Show" says, "I've always been missing the poetry appreciation gene, but it kicked in for...this book!" "Designing Woman" Dixie Carter calls it "...a joyful evocation of Southern womanhood." This is a perfect gift for those "significant" birthdays--from 39 to 100!--and a great read for book clubs. Topics include aging gracefully (or not!), the value of friendship, ways to handle a wayward man, and the healing power of a good cup of tea. $12.95

Existence 101

Here's what I think:
God put us here to do more than take up space
and mow grass.
We are here to contribute something.
Teachers, doctors, scientists, artists--all shoo-ins.
Pro ballplayers, fashion designers--on shaky ground.
Most of us fall somewhere in between.
Yesterday, for example, I made my family?s favorite dessert,
smiled at a solemn old man,
and let three strangers go ahead of me in the turn lane.
Today, however, I fear I owe the universe a sizable debt
for the peace, love, and joy my black mood
sucked straight out of the ozone.
So be it.
We are not perfect, and there is no grade.
There is only opportunity.
Carpe carefully.
