RIP Sunny

This past Thursday, we faced the death of our very much beloved, 35+-year-old horse, Sunny. He defined what it means to be a noble creature, whether he was standing his nightly guard outside his goat friends’ stall, allowing my sons to safely learn horsemanship, or moving his body gently to not hurt us when we tried to help him up over his last few days.

Sunny, you will be greatly missed.

Sunny, in one of his favorite spots: in front of his food bowl.



Interview with Sonnet L’Abbe on Reviewing

I’m quite late in posting about this interview. It was originally published on Maisonneuve‘s blog on October 26, 2010. Nevertheless, Sonnet L’Abbé does an excellent job of defining the purpose and the qualities of a good book review.

As someone who currently spends a significant amount of my writing life crafting reviews, L’Abbé ‘s words provide an excellent standard by which to measure my work.
