HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LOUISA MAY ALCOTT
Meg, Jo, Beth & Amy March are dear old friends.
With me nearly all my life.
They have remained in my heart and mind since our first encounter, a century after Louisa May Alcott published LITTLE WOMEN and now that more than 50 years more have passed.
My dear English friend Rosalind once confided that she always identified with Meg. Perfect casting!
On the other hand, I've always found solace in Jo's trials and comfort in her all to familiar tribulations.
Revisit them frequently in the well worn pages of my ancient copy of this favorite book.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Louisa May Alcott!! November 29, 1832, Germantown, PA (outside Philadelphia)
