    This is so lovely. I hope she puts together that book and that it is not too skinny.

    What a lovely reminder of how beautifully Abigail Thomas teaches us to pay attention to everything around us in the world, the tiny seemingly insignificant things and the grand ones too. Always such a joy to read her words.

    Is there any emotion you can’t elicit in me, Abby? I think not.

    Gorgeous, lush– the texture is breathtaking. I asked my students to read your essay for my classes, our first piece of reading of the semester. Thank you. I look forward to your book.
