What do you question? What do you want to explore? What do you want others
Horses as therapists. The love of grandmothers. Places are part of our
souls. These are a few ideas Jodi Buchan has contemplated and written about over
the past several years. Recently, Jodi and her writing partner, Lynn Moore,
have been exploring the ubiquitous nature of coffee on their blog at
www.coffeesnobology.wordpress.com . Projects on and in and under her desk for the
near future include a caregiver’s guide to advocacy, an agro-tourism book,
and various story topics that inspire her to ask questions such as, “Does a
three-legged werewolf qualify for a handicap parking tag?”
