Somehow a lot of time has passed and it is now May 10, and I am completely recovered form pneumonia, and have been to Cuba for nine days, and then to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, OR, and now am just about to leave for NYC for four days of theater and opera. Wedged in around and among all of this, I have been, actually working. Writing. Despite my brain having turned 80 years old, it still functions, along with my imagination.

I was delighted to see (speaking of "old" writers...i.e., those of us who have been around for a long time) that Katherine Paterson has a book coming out which is set in Cuba.  There is much to be said for Cuba...in particular their unversal health care as well as literacy....along, sadly, with the terrible poverty and the governmental corruption. I have not read KP's book but I think it is about the amazing, and successful, effort to create a literate populace after the 1959 revolution.

Here's a photo I took in rural Cuba....an unidentified woman, but the light was so lovely as she stood in the doorway.

More to come, but right now I must get myself off to the airport. We have tickets for THE GREAT COMET in New York tonight. And tomorrow, a wonderful event which I will write about afterward.

The healthy nutritional value that nuts have naturally comes into its own better in healthy recipes such as salads, cottage cheese or breakfast cereals. It is not always necessary for nuts to be processed in dishes. If you want to make sure it stays healthy, you have to eat the nuts pure. It is also important that you are aware of which nut you eat and why. Namely not every nut has the same nutritional value and components. For example, one note can contain more fats, while the other is packed with vitamins.
