hand that first held mine"Listen. The trees in this story are stirring, trembling, readjusting themselves. A breeze is coming in gusts off the sea and it is almost as if the trees know, in their restlessness, in their head-tossing impatience, that something is about to happen." -- The Hand That First Held Mine by Maggie O'Farrell (April 12, 2010)

Anyone can play! What do you have, today?
