Farming, Food and Love

Watch: The Girl From Paris 
Listen: Dixie Chicks Fly

The inimitable Molly requested this collection. The memoir sounds
captivating: a Harvard-grad NYC reporter and the dreamy farmer she met during an interview create a self-sustaining farm that allows for living
 "outside the river of consumption". 
It has me singing Cowboy Take Me Away.
Count me in.

 Dorie Greenspan is a master of making French cooking
accessible, even to a disaster like me. 
Can't wait to check it out.

 If you are unable to find The Girl From Paris at the library,  
try My Father's Glory. It is a magical memoir about a
boy's desire to be taught by his school-teacher father
how to live among the elements on their summer holiday,
all the while hoping that his experienced uncle doesn't
show his father up. The scenery, dialogue and characters
are captivating.

Thank you, Molly, for such beautiful inspiration.

The library - an organic, earth-friendly plantation.
As green as can be.

xoxo Michele

Great blog Michele, I love how you combine books, music, food etc.. by theme. It's such a good idea. Life is all about the five senses, and I love to immerse myself in the whole experience when I read a book.
