"There are only two mantras, yum and yuck, mine is yum."

I have just discovered that one of my all time favorite authors, Tom Robbins, was born in a town very close to where I now spend my days, Blowing Rock. I was turned on to Tom by my friend, Holly, years ago and have been an avid fan ever since. If you have a soft spot for the bizarre yet optimistic adventures of very well rounded characters, this is your bag of cookies.

Isn't it amazing how life weaves together? Years ago, you had no idea that you'd be in NC.

I love my old, roughed up copy of that book. I have let so many people borrow makes it that much more special. I'll always have a place in my heart for Tom Robbins!
