I’m linking up for the first time ever! Linking with Leigh Kramer. Let’s see how this goes.
Found The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck in a corner on a shelf at HalfPrice Books. Never read any Steinbeck before. Never knew how hilarious he was!

A therapy that leads to suicide and depression dressed in happiness and freedom and God. Here Kevin, with more grace than I can muster, responds.
