I'm Linking to Show and Tell at Cindy's blog My Romantic Home.
Hi Guys! Just finished The Soloist by Steve Lopez. I loved the book. A very easy read that really gives you a good, realistic idea of the work and frustration family and friends experience when a loved one is diagnosed with schizophrenia. The story depicts the efforts that Steve Lopez goes to to help Mr. Ayers. It also really brings to light the plight of the homeless and mentally ill in California. There is no happy ending here. Just the story. The book is much, MUCH better than the movie. As much as I love Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Fox, the movie falls far short of telling the story that Mr. Lopez tells so well in his novel.
Well, I have a button, which I hope you will take! AND a pretty new divider, AND a rose on my signature! AIN'T I SUMTHIN!?
Are you soooooo jealous? I know you are! LOL!
But don't worry... You too can doll up your blog.
If you want something pretty for your blog I would gladly recommend Karen Valentine of Valentine Design. She was very easy to work with and fast too!
She also has a beautiful Home and Garden blog that lots of us know about. Some of the cutest ideas and tutorials. My Desert Cottage. I spend a lot of time there.
Thank you Karen!
