Recently I posted information and a photo of the young boy who has succeeded in bring a library into being in his library-less town in New Hampshire. The library will probably open at New Years. I've had several inquiries from readers who are interested...as I am...in donating books; so I have written to RJ, age 14, to ask him how we can do that, and I'll post the information here when I have it. Thank you all for wanting to support this kid and his wonderful project. If only the world were filled with such youngsters! It does remind us all, though, how energetic, determined, and outstanding some teenagers are.

I'm writing from a hotel lobby in London. The weather here reminds me of the name that Benjamin Moore gave to the color that I had my downstairs rooms in Maine painted: November Rain. A mix of gray and pale green. All of London looks like that, at least today.

My studio in Maine, the room in which I work, is painted Rain Barrel.

Wouldn't you love to be the person who names those paint colors? Maybe for a day, anyway.

Can't wait to take a look at your friend's book soon. Interesting that you don't think the question of who you support is invasive - I just came back from a working holiday visa in Australia and as a receptionist, people would notice my accent right away and more than once immediately asked me who I supported, without a hint of trepidation that it might not be polite. I endured many questions from them about being an American, but that struck me most personally. I don't mind telling other Americans (probably because I'm hoping to influence their vote!) but somehow... as charming as they are... the Aussies who launched right in made me shrink into my shell. (It just occurred to me that maybe it was because I was afraid they'd ask "why" which Americans don't ask as much, and I'd have to "confess" that I made my decision on gut feeling, not policy. "Why" is a common follow-up to the faith question too, which may explain some of your hesitancy in answering the student's question.)
