From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?
"Obliged to you for hearing me, and I do have a few things more to say..."

Tea for Two: Thelma Barlow: Just made do with what I had |

     Here is my column out today in case you spilled your cheerios on your morning paper.
Tea for Two: Thelma Barlow: Just made do with what I had . Am still seeking recipes of long standing from this general area (Seacoast New Hampshire/ southern Maine) for a book project. Please let me know if you have one you think should be included. What dishes do you consider traditional eats for the area? What do you serve to out of town guests? Maybe most telling, what do you most miss the taste of when you are away?
     I am also looking into Scribd and am considering publishing some writing there. My techno-savvy, but overly-cynical son, insists that it is a bad idea. I think it might be necessary as it is one of the places where publishers go trolling. Would like to know if anyone has had any experiences with it, or similar sites, positive or negative.
