"Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is will manica. This month we're highlighting women who've led dynamic lives. Lives that have shifted evolved and bloomed. Often later in life. Today's dynamo is one of the most popular children's book authors of all time. And her books about adventure on the American plains weren't just fiction. They told her own life story. Let's talk about Laura ingalls wilder. Laura ingalls really was born in a little house in the big Woods in 1867. Her family had a farm and pepin Wisconsin and Laura was their second child. Laura's parents, Charles and Caroline were extremely self sufficient. They made butter and cheese from their milk cows, grew their own vegetables, kept pigs for meat, made sugar from maple syrup, and gathered wild honey. Charles even molded his own bullets for hunting. When Laura was two years old, her family moved illegally to the osage Indian reservation in Kansas. For the next few years, they bounced around, heading back to Wisconsin and then Minnesota and Iowa before settling in de smet South Dakota. Laura was now older and life had gotten a lot more complicated since the little House in the big Woods. She had three more siblings, one a brother had died as a baby. Her older sister Mary had caught a fever and gone blind. Laura had to be her eyes, guiding her through the world. The second winter in South Dakota, a series of blizzards buried all of smed. Nothing could get in or out of the town, including supplies. Laura's family ran out of food and wood. Every morning, Laura's dad followed a rope he'd strung up between the house and barn, so he wouldn't get lost in the blinding snow. Every afternoon, Laura and her parents and her siblings took turns grinding up wheat in a coffee grinder. They huddled in their cabin, burning bales of hay for a little heat. It seemed like they might not make it. But two local boys made it across the Prairie and back with a shipment of wheat and saved the town. Years later, Laura would marry one of those boys, almanzo wilder. Though she loved going to school, Laura never got her high school diploma. Instead, when she was 15, she got her first job teaching. Every week, almanzo wilder gave her a buggy ride to school. Their friendship turned to love and they married when Laura was 18. Married life for Laura and almanzo ushered in a series of devastating losses. But first, before their crops froze in their barns burned and almanzo caught diphtheria. Laura.

"Out. Oh really yeah. I could see that he might be a little bit too innovative for you. Know standard structured school. I could see that Well you meant to work right away so he was like the second youngest of i think it was like seventeen kids or my gosh. I hadn't realized he had that many siblings So maria montessori was born in italy in eighteen seventy she was an exceptional exceptional person. The only female attendee of an all boys school. Maria was one of italy's first female doctors. She became interested in education in nineteen. Oh seven and she opened a childcare center in rome where she could put her educational theories into practice and he probably recognize that name montessori so she was the founder of the school. You have different methods you know of. Teaching montessori is definitely one where there's a lot of exploration And focus on the child but she has a quote here says never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed That's interesting actually like that. Yeah i didn't realize that. The montessori principles went back that far. That's that's really cool. I don't know you think that you know all the things we have today are like new and innovative and sometimes they're not yeah. Yeah we're just our presuppositions. We never know what we might not know exactly. So here's one. And i since we are a podcast for readers and writers. I thought this was kind of a special when it's laura ingalls wilder and she's famous yes. She's famous for her little house on the prairie books. So she too was a teacher. She taught in a one room. Schoolhouse in south dakota. This schoolhouse happen to me Twelve miles from the town. She lived in thou-. I'm guessing you know that way. Children who lived in rural areas could also go to school. But gee twelve miles in a horse and buggy Yes i remember reading about that. It was wintertime too. So she couldn't go back every we like sear family on the weekends except that someone came and picked her up and so almonds. A wilder came a picture up and she had no clue why he was doing this. She was like. Wow he impa must be really good friends for him to come and pick me up as a favor. This is really nice of him. So that's that's actually kind of how he started courting her if i remember correctly yeah i knew that. She taught as a young woman but sometimes teachers were. They were seen as unfitting a teacher to be like pregnant. You know right so they were often not married. But i think that really depends on where they were at in particular community so her quote is the only stupid thing about words is the spelling of them. American english is just. I think it's actually. I love that. It's just this melting pot of different cultures. You know how many different the words that we have from different cultures. I think it's really special but i am. Spelling is not something. I am very good at so i definitely kind of feel like mrs wilder really knew what she was talking about there. Yes she was definitely on to something there. The inconsistencies man. I mean i. I complained about you know trying to learn other languages. You know that it's so difficult. And then i think about someone trying to learn english. I know maybe. I shouldn't complain too much long. Yeah yeah so there you have it. It's a short look at a few teachers in history. But here's one final quote says from albert. Einstein says imagination is everything and as a writer and reader. I heartily agree. Tom for our bookworm review. So book today is faiths mountain home by misty m. beller nate long has always watched over his identical twin brother aaron even when it put him on the wrong side of the law when aaron is wounded in a shootout the brothers were taken to settlers for it to recover as networks to make reparations for their past he marvels at the nursing errand receives and the care of a woman with all the reasons in the world to resent him. Laura hanan knows what it is to start over and she knows nate's newfound faith is real what she can't look past is how far he allowed himself to be led astray by his brothers weaknesses. As a fledging trust grows between the and laura they stumble upon a mysterious cave in the mountains. That may not be as uninhabited as it seems as they work together for our common cause will the new lives they seek for themselves include love or is there too much that stands between them looming complex characters and multifaceted relationship. Says i do. I have to say i think the heroes stole show a little bit in the story. Nate is an ex outlaw with a kind heart and a lot of restitution yet to make his brothers also interesting. The kind of character. I want to see how his own book day all in all. It's a great cast. The whole town is full of people. You can easily imagine meeting if you travel back in time. The romance is very sweet and study. The heroin is kind courageous. The hero honorable and humble. There's little violence for a western. The faith element is overt yet. A natural part of characters lives. And i loved the montana setting. I would tell you about the cave but you should probably discover that yourself. This is the third book in the hearts of montana series and from the bits i've seen of earlier characters in this book. I want to read the ups if you enjoy story about.

Yes a great conversation about This? How to respond to those people and you? Some really good points on on just how to. Deal with those in our lives, who maybe are not on board with home, schooling and and and you know we won't go through olive again because we talked about those in part, one but one of the things that we have talked about is that there is is so important to have. Friendships with people who are like minded other homeschool MOMS being part of a home school community, and just having that support, because especially if you don't have the support of your family, but even if you do, we really need to work to cultivate. Mom Friendships and homeschool mom friendships if we are homeschool moms, and because it's really kind of what fills us up. I know for myself. What keeps me going? I'm as being able to talk to my my friends, in India's off of them when I'm having a hard day just. Saying you know, please pray for me. We're having a rough day today. And then being able to do the same with me, so I would love for you to talk misty about that in just how you have gone about cultivating those friendships in in your ten years of homeschooling. Yes so when I started home schooling like I said in the last part I had no family support whatsoever. And actually that's High I. Really only knew one other homeschool. Mom and at the time is crazy because I felt her kids were so much older than mine, and they were, I think second. Second Third Third Fourth. Job But my kids were preschool age about like she was home schooling. These older kids is, she wants to my church. Her name's Jamie. Brown indentured homeschool mentor, and honestly she really took me under her wing. She introduced me at the time to four other moms than they had all started home schooling together. Of raise their kids together in done these get togethers once or twice a month than she invited the alongside them and. Again. They all had kids older than mine. And You know she really helps me and I. think that without her. Actually I know without her. I would not have kept on home schooling because she would tell me you know. She told me she your first couple years. It's going to be hard. You know you're gonNa cry, you know. This is what you can do in really if I texted her or asked her any any questions at all, she would help me. Her and the other moms in our community and I saw the relationships they had with each other and the relationships their kids all had within each other, and it gave me hope it encouraged me. It helped me to realize that you know I could do this and my kids. You know there was some i. don't forget what you call it, but you know the proof is in the pudding Aymen's. It helps me to see that because these kids were older than mine and you know. Some of them had junior high school kids. You know it really helps. Encourage me that you know. I could keep doing this and gave me hope for my kids in for our ability to home school So I think that that right? There is really what helped me. Go ahead and jump in and do it, and like I could but I then also decided okay. Jamie, was this to me. You Know I. Want To then be this mentor to other MOMS which is really kind of helps me start my blog by podcast, but in addition to that I started a home school group in our community. There were two or three other moms who had younger kids like my kids. You know preschool kindergarten age and we started getting together and started kind of forming our own. Group about a year after I started home schooling, and you know our kids have grown up together and that little group of just three or four MOMS as now into. We had eighty kids. Up last fall and You know it really helped. Start something in our community. And even we started doing field trips in just different things like that and those. MOMS really have been the ones who have helped me continue to home school. They're the ones you know that we call each other. We hold each other accountable. They're the people who helped. Encourage us courage each other. When we're having those hard days in that community feel there's community relationships I. Think are so important in the home school community in too often times we don't realize. How important they are yeah, and it is so very important to have those relationships, and even you know it's fun to see like field trips going on, and and just being able to do life together I know that where we are. In Georgia right now. There's a great community of homeschool families who who'd do things together. You know and it kind of. The the younger kids do things together. They've got a high school kind of section of the group that does things together but even simple things like one of the groups a while back. They had a I. Forget what they call it, but like a curriculum I know display group not to sell your curriculum, but they said everyone bring your favorite curriculum. We're GONNA. GonNa meet at the park. Let the kids play and then be able to look at what other people are doing and then we got to. You know what we weren't there to sell anything or do anything it was just you know there's always the question every year of what you do for history. What do you do for science? What do you do for language arts? And so it was so great to be able to go and just say Oh you use you know this w. what do you think of it? I've never used this? I was thinking about this, and you get to open it and feel and talk to the mom who used this year. doing things like that. You know you know we. We have another Our big support group does a curriculum sale, and so we couple of weeks ago, we actually had this huge book sale where everyone went and sold their used curriculum or stuff that they weren't using anymore and I got some amazing deals as a matter of fact I have to tell you I was so excited I felt like I had won the lottery. There's a free table there at people just don't want to worry about deal about selling it. They just want to. Get it off. Their hands and someone had an entire box set of McAfee readers. I St- for free and I was so excited about these I brought him home, and we watch little house on the prairie from time to time. You know it's just one of those fun. Little shows and secretly I want to be. Laura Ingalls Wilder. Who Go I. Do want interest like Mary Kerry Kerrey Laura Right Right yes yes. Yes, I do want to have electric.

You're the one that I want and listening to it over and over and over and over again because it's like a a an incredibly brilliantly constructed piece of Pop music and once you fall into that rob hall. It's for me. It's very hard to because at the date rape one. I can't remember what's the one that song does. Did she put up a fight? Yeah no it's not. It's not that but but as we talked about it on the podcast that is there is a lot of rape. E weirdness and Greece. Watch it now sure. That was what they did back then. What EVERYBODY SAYS. But it's like it was raining complain like this movie isn't really that way except for Robbie who's like just this jerk Thorough Med school guy. Or whatever the hell is supposed to be right. Oh but hungry is the medley as wonderful because it really shows her transformation from the innocent you know Klutz to this can like figuring out her own womanhood and I think that's the the pink tank top moment right. Oh really is that no no maybe not jazz your song. I think just sort of like a dancer. Song guys is like when they're practicing together right it. It's pretty great.

Emily Dickinson's Gardening Life, Marta McDowell
"Emily Dickinson was a gardener. She was also an iconic poet. And and this week we enjoy a conversation. With Garden Writer Marta McDowell to hear more about how the two callings intermingled in the life of emily only Dickinson. Welcome Marta arm so happy to be back Jennifer. I also happy to have you. I will note that this makes you the all all time. Most interviewed person on cultivating place. Marta so we should have like a drum roll. Happy to have Marta back back. So I have given you a little bit of an introduction but remind listeners and tell new listeners of whom there are a great many a little a bit about your own current practice in what you do as a writer what you do as a gardener of course while I consider myself self a garden writer and really I do a lot of things that you can append the word garden too you so I teach about gardening. I lecture about gardening. I they do some consulting on gardening and I very much garden myself as well and tell tell us just a tiny bit about your current garden and partly why I want you to describe this for listeners is that it bears the beautiful traces traces in threads and clues of almost all the books you have worked on which I think you like to describe as being at the sort of intersection of the pen and the Trowel trowel. Yes so the reason my garden is overcrowded. Just definitely read too much and so when I read about a an author who likes to garden I want to grow. Grow what they grew it. It's like a little link through time as if I could reach out I- fingers and touch them. I'm in a way that is not the into page which you know we so often encounter a writer through the printed page but actually through this medium medium of plant yeah give us an illustration of how this has worked for you. So and I I say this again to just illustrate this wonderful crossover that you include in all the books that I have read of yours. which is sort of how to have a garden in like this person would have had a garden and this was true in the Laura Ingalls Wilder Book and this is definitely true in the Emily Dickinson Book? And I believe it was true in terms of at least plant lists in all the president's gardens as well. Yes I seem to like to count. Things are always very long-planned implant list. must be some like personality type but my garden is. Let's see it's a garden of about a half an acre occurred. It is in a suburban neighborhood. My house is not new. It was built in nineteen twenty nine. Which means it's approaching one hundred years old? It sits on the front of the property so in the front. I have only only things that aren't lawn in the back. I have a tiny so-called lawn although most people who who look at it probably wouldn't call it that and I have many trees my one little patch of son I have flowers ars and herbs and then I have a woodland garden in the back and I think that's the one. Interestingly that Emily Dickenson has influenced the most because she did do a lot of wildflower collecting in wildflower walks and so in her home in her letters there so many wildflowers and she's she's from Massachusetts. I live in New Jersey. You know basically. That's a little colder where she is but I can grow most of the things that she would have found and in the woods around amherst Massachusetts so things like blood route. You know what a what a great emily Dickenson glanced right. Yeah you know You know just so many of those little spring ephemeral the things that bloom in in the spring and then completely disappear at least in my garden by the end of the summer. And then don't pop up again until next spring Burton. Yeah so you've been a gardener far longer than you've been a garden writer and you've been garden writer for a very long time now. How did one become the other and tell us about emily? Dickinson's role in that. So the the minute I had a little patch patch of earth which was round. I duNNo. Let's say nineteen eighty. I started to garden and started to just WanNa grow growth things in in a way. It didn't matter what the thing was. I just really discovered this connection to the soil and and Emily Dickinson happened entirely by accident. It was when I was in a completely different life I was. I had a job in corporate America. I would go on these trips from Lil. You know the head office in New Jersey and go out to visit insurance agencies at in this case ace and I was going across Massachusetts visiting agencies and I had a spare afternoon and I I literally told off into a higher a rest area and stared at the brochure wreck. Can you picture that yes again right. And so there was the thing for the Emily Dickinson Concerned Museum and I thought Oh hit studied Emily Dickinson you know. Let me go up to the museum and so I called. I'm sure on the pay phone and and said can I still make it. And she said Yes yes come and I found out that day Emily Dickinson had been a gardener and the door opened opened for me. I'm I suppose was poetry. It was like you know two roads diverged in the Ray Right right and so I just I. I absolutely became obsessed with Emily Dickinson and her gardening interests. And so that was a round nineteen eighteen ninety eight Two years later I I left my corporate job. I published an article about Emily Dickinson. I you know I just. I took another track. I started studying gardening. You know more seriously and you know kind of building up. I don't know and then you know I published a book in two thousand five and two thousand ten. I worked with the New York Botanical Garden on a big shows. You would think I had planned it right but I did just happen. It just happened. And and somehow the universe the collective consciousness the the seeds dormant in your own soul Found you took took you and grew you along this path and it was It has taken several kind of guises since then But Emily Dickinson was definitely the start. And when you say you published a book in two thousand five. That was your first book on Emily Dickinson. The first edition of this book is that correct. Yes and that was my first book about gardening and the same likewise with the big exhibit at The New York Botanic Tena Gardens. That was all sort of botanic garden exhibition about Emily Dickinson her gardening life and her gardening hardening motivation as well. Correct yes and I should say you know. This is the value of going to a museum right right. You know it's like you may not think anything in particular about a museum but you know it really something can touch you. And I've stayed involved with the museum really from the start. So that's been a continuous thread.

"laura ingalls" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"I heart radio app but my KFI reporter Laura Ingalls currently fox news reporter joins us on the line and one of my dearest friends in the whole wide world Laura good morning good morning John nice settle you down right well that's funny I said am I ever gonna be able to color lord this morning actually wrote your name out I thought have we call either by our first names in twenty years right so quick back story Lauren I actually met in nineteen ninety seven when we were working for a station in Sacramento and up both of us at that time very new very green reporters worked there for a few years together what were there like three years then Laura gets a big break comes down here to KFI I get my big break go to San Francisco and all of a sudden shortly after that boom both of us are calling each other going oh my god we're going to September eleventh we're going to the attacks it was a crazy thing how do you get there by the way. well it was it was quite an Odyssey because Chris little our news director the new director is still there and he called me and said I don't care what you're doing get a bad to get to the airport of course at that point we knew you know that the airports were starting to close and we just tried every single day I went to downtown LA to do reporting that day because I could get on a plane and every single day there after I went to the studios and and create town and we would try to get on a flight and every day we could get on and then one day I remember Chris coming out of the at his office in the newsroom and said who can get Laura to Las Vegas right now that they've just opened up the first one of the first flight and we can get on it and so I had a producer we drove very fast to Vegas and I got on a plane with an entire plane full of stranded new Yorkers who wore stock on the west coast that was you know a very. difficult experience to be on the plane with them because once we got into the New York area and it was an overnight flight we lifted up the windows and all you could do with this was the smells and the entire plane just you can hear the gasp and you could feel the emotion and the tears started and every single aisle and I went to New York for the first time I'd ever been to New York City and I came with two tape decks you remember around yeah yes I came into debt tape decks and on a backpack full of equipment to get a five on the from the hotel and I remember sitting in my plane seat and I hit record play and I never stopped rolling and I wrote the entire time that we were there yeah I think I I ended up going on a bus they sent me that. it was crazy four and a half days on a bus across the country but talking about the strain a new Yorkers I sat next to a woman who worked on Wall Street and as we were getting back no I'm sorry she worked at the one of buildings near I guess near the twin towers and I don't got closer and closer she started being able to contact family members that she had been able to get a hold of before and I'll never forget crossing the bridge going into New York City and seeing that same cloud of smoke that you're talking about and was crying everybody on the bus had a reaction that Kreider they gasp did they whatever it was you couldn't believe it until you got there and then the smell of being down there at ground zero was just something I'll never forget I can still I mean we can all still small and you know I it even anywhere across the country I think everybody knows somebody who was it who either perished or know somebody who did and everybody here certainly has a story and if you would have told me eighteen years ago that I'd be living in New York after being there for the first time on that week and I I felt like I was in the twilight zone I remember walking out of the subway and and coming up to ground level and and it was it was crazy it was it was dusty there were military members of the military tanks and a cargo truck and you know assault rifles and helmets and you're like where am I what it you know it just it was just such a unique devastating experience obviously but it just just to experience to your for the very first time that way and then you didn't even have to really speak out I need to go find a story. your kept your tape deck rolling and talk to anybody that would talk to you and and most people did it was like a a group therapy session on the largest scale you can imagine of everybody walking around the people with member when we went down with everybody walking around their pictures have used as my family member and the tears and bringing the two questions down over to the river where they had set up makeshift area where they were bringing people ask asking them to bring stuff from their home that they can get some DNA samples that they could try to start identifying people which of course took so long and for obvious reasons it was just a surreal experience and and every the temporal events we wake up and we relive those memories as a as a nation and and on a personal level of where we were that day how we experienced that and how it has stayed with us forever yeah and I think it's exactly those stories there was a story of a mom and it was as we were going into the area where the media could get in see you around ground zero and it was a mom who handed me a picture of her daughter who was missing and she said she's crying and she said please find my daughter you can get in there please find her and you knew I mean this was days later but I knew that her daughter was dead but it was stories like that it was a woman I was in a coffee shop and there was a woman who was sitting there very nicely dressed woman kinda looks almost like she was going to an office job and as I walked in she had a little box and she handed me a pen of like a safety pin with beads on it that made an American flag we're going to cover the story is going to the different on firefighters at the different fire stations where most of the entire crew had been killed and having to interview those firefighters and watching them relive the memories in their minds if you could just see it in their eyes with they were going through right then I mean it's it's things that you you can't forget even if you wanted to you know what I remember I was trying to before I got on the radio with you I was thinking of you know what what sticks out to me other than white I think one of my biggest memory just coming out of Canal Street and. and seeing the military you know everywhere now and now that the daily part of our lives living in New York City I I commute I go through Penn station and every morning I come up the escalator and I've got several different agencies with A. K. A. K. forty sevens and whatever there and holding but they everybody here is military now so it's just become a part of our daily life that was one of the biggest memories that I have from that day but also I somehow and you know how this works especially the radio radio is awesome first on so many levels because it's not the you can quote get away with stuff but we don't have a camera you can kind of bother we then get in between cars and people talk to you more often with the radio Mike as opposed to having a camera in your face and so as we were getting closer to the ground zero area are like somehow made it past a barricade I wasn't supposed to be passed and I was watching the search dogs they had set up a base set up these pool and they had and I was rolling on that as well that was a one of my pieces for KFI and they were taking the dog that we're going in the capitanes going into the search and they had the dogs were getting so confused with the amount of what the amount of debris that was on their pause as if they were taking the dogs and they were dipping them into these bass because they had to get the matter off of their little paws and get them cleaned off they could go back again and so it was like this assembly line of of you know little pools that they had dipping the dot getting them ready to go in and out and in and out and I was standing I got kicked out of that particular area when he realized the been there but it was again another memory of just watching how the operation worked and of course we've all watched for so many years you know at the people talking about what it was like being in the pile and how long people were down there and now today fast forward eighteen years the beautiful reflecting pools at the footprints of the towers and I always tell people who come here and visit what should we do well you should you know hit the show go to the. restaurant but you've got to go down you've got to go downtown I feel like it's your duty to go down there and take a minute and remember absolutely and you do you remember it there was a beautiful cathedral across the street from the twin towers is that the twin towers blew up everything around them ways broken windows you know blown out things but they but they were you know some of the best the buildings were even down in some of the places sorry I was that cathedral across the street that was untouched and for whatever reason for me that sort of miraculous standing building with the stained glass how it didn't blow up also send me something about like you know what we're gonna make it we're gonna make it through this and it was just such a it all of that debris and all of that rubble and all of that sadness that one standing building was sort of like a little beacon of hope and all of that. all chapel and as they call it the little church that stood yes yes and if it's over two hundred fifty years old and you know that that is best known by residents as New York city's little church that stood so people know that people visit at as you know not a not a tourist attraction but somewhere to go and pay respect yeah and see what happened and and so many of us who were down there and know that I mean look we didn't we weren't there that day we went there even a couple of days it took us both several days to get into position you know it at the end but people will tell you one of the other startling and and very hard things to even fathom is how all of the medical teams had you know came out and were standing there with gurneys and we're waiting for people to calm yeah and they never came yeah it was still talk about that today well to this day my friend I am so grateful that you were there because at night Lauren I would we went there was them for whatever reason our hotels were just down the street from each other and there was an Italian restaurants like right in the middle and we would kind of go there and decompress at night and we would just order dinner have a glass of wine and just talk about our day you had to get it out and and that the the fact it was all so surreal you almost needed to talk to somebody who was going through the same thing because you thought nobody is going to believe this nobody right I couldn't convey this to somebody who's not here witnessing this crazy bizarre apocalyptic thing that I'm in the middle of right it was it was so I was thankful for you being there as well and even calling back to KFI and okay what kind of phone do you have what shows are we going to do and you know talking with Chris little and Michael Clarke and everybody at the time talking about what shows were going to be doing with John and Ken and bill Handel and and I'm so grateful for the time to be able to that's what the great about talk radio if you can just let it roll let's ride and can just talk and talk and play the sound that you have these amazing interviews but you know you could the the smell. the air that people still talk about today that everybody can remember at the that plastic the electrical burning and that did tend the secondary small the came after you needed it was a group therapy session for anybody to have somebody here to talk to and it was hard to convey that and I don't know I don't know what you did with your family I don't remember but I I remember I didn't tell anybody I I just I didn't tell my family I was going because I knew how hard that was gonna be two point in New York so I just kind of a limited that until about a week later and I was ready to leave I said by the way I'm here. I told my parents but we talked on a daily basis and it would have been worse if they thought you know what you mean now we can't get a hold of her eyes so I did I told them right away but it was just.

"Which I it took me a long time to figure out why people were doing that. And I realized that it was because they're trying to say, you know, now, I want you to know me. I feel like I know you it's interesting Laura Ingalls wilder wrote of her books. I told the truth, but not the whole truth. Yeah. Exactly. It doesn't all belong. It doesn't go in. Or I think it was anti Dillard who went said something like you don't get credit for living. Right. They here's an interesting question that I have wondered myself Carol s why was the dress on the book cover? I kept thinking there would be a mention of a special dress. But then there wasn't. So that dress was actually my dress big. It was a great story. When my last book hourglass had just come out of those on book tour and this fabric artist named Diana way. Mar came up to me, and she said, do you have an article of clothing that I could make something out of. And I immediately thought about that little dress because I was early in the throes of my discovery that eventually became inheritance. I was thinking a lot about myself as a little girl and everything that I didn't know and that was a dress that I wore as a flower girl cousins wedding. And it wasn't like in mothballs or anything. It was like lying in my basement. And it'll be high. I wish Gretchen if it were you would probably would be very well preserved and take it would have been gone garlicky actually mine was like it was like sitting next to sort of defunct wine cellar. So I remembered the dress, and I sent it to her, and as she started working on it to make her art out of it. She started sending me pictures of the dress on her life box on when it came time to design a cover. And there was somebody else recovers that weren't really working. And I remembered the little dress, and I had all of these images was pure accident. And then the art director at my publisher, whose brilliant because the dress was actually ice blue. Oh, she took the dress and made it into that sort of like flesh tone pinky color, because we think of the, yeah, if you think of it as ice blue, it would look like a disturbing story or a ghost story. And instead just this kind of I tiled hood childhood. Exactly. Oh, that's beautiful. That is a great story. Danny Stephanie has an interesting question. She says does Danny think that one of the reasons her bio family was so welcoming is because she is very accomplished to ever get the impression that if she were a factory worker. Or a sales clerk they may not have been so open to meeting I asked because there's a lot of emphasis in the book on writing emails in a way that is non offensive direct, but polite and had she written him with emojis and bad spelling and not as compelling a background if they would have dismissed her outright. That's a great question. And it's a tough question. I mean, I actually think that might being accomplished as a writer was initially detrimental. She knew they must've known right away. This could be a book well in my initial note to my biological father. It was a pretty brief note. But I wrote I included my website, and I include my website, honestly. So that he would see that I was relatively successful in that had a family of my own and that I probably didn't want anything from him. But at the same time what I didn't really consider that. If you looked at my website on the homepage. And I thought oh he'll see a picture of meals. See how much like him. I look. Yeah. But there was also a picture of me with Oprah with her arm around me, and that's not a plus in that situation. I mean, I really think he thought this woman is going to like knock on my door. And I'm going to open it, and there's gonna go Oprah and a camera crew we thought of that, of course, and he's a very private person..
