    I always look forward to this post each week, Lark! You have so many links which always make me smile, laugh and sometimes even cry.

    This week I quickly saw the calendar, the bookish quote and the info about writers and healthcare. I know I’ll find more great info as I actually get a chance to read a bunch of these!
