In between sessions in front of the computer designing and hours printing and folding, I’ve been putting up my feet and watching the Great British Baking Show…I love it so much…the passion and skill expressed…the kindness and humor of the participants…the lovely details in the creations and in the setting.

And as our internet connection has been so poorly lately, I got some movies from the library to watch bit by bit in other respites from work. By far the best was A Testament of Youth. The PBS mini-series I watched in college has always stayed with me, and I was on tenterhooks to see how they re-made this true story based on Vera Brittain’s book about her years in and around World War I. It is beautiful, in every way, all the more so-to me-because it is true. I highly recommend it.
