Writing that Means Something

   About fifteen years ago, my daughter Molly and I worked together on a little book about Louisa Schwartz, the lady in whose memory Glenwood Springs' official Christmas tree was planted.  The bulbs on the giant spruce were from the 50's, many were broken or didn't work, and the tree wasn't even lit for the past few years.
    But this year, the old bulbs were replaced with 4,000 LED lights, and I was asked to speak about Mrs.Schwartz!  Here's me by the plaque at the base of the tree.

     It feels good to be a part of something meaningful, thanks to my writing!
Happy Holidays!


  1. What a nice feeling that must be. Congratulations!

  2. Very cool! I love Christmas trees. There's nothing more magical than seeing them lit up after dark. And I just got mine done this evening! =) Congrats on the honor!

  3. Love warm fuzzy feelings like that! Congratulations on being included as a special part of the town's history in the making.
