One Woman's Opinion
Order Mary Buxton’s books
Life and love in the rural tidewater area of Virginia is a common thread that runs through nearly all of Mary Wakefield Buxton's books. The push and pull of old and new, North and South, man and woman, life and death, are discovered, illuminated and reflected upon in each of them. Such is the heart and soul of a writer.
Tis the season when the carping, angry, ego-centric human brain that spends far too much time raging and ruminating about all the things that aren’t “fair,” “right,” “good,” “easy” or “pleasant” in life finally stops to reflect on life’s many blessings. Thanksgiving calls for those chronic iced complaints from incessantly yapping mouths to melt into warm waters of appreciation.
When you’re married to a work-aholic as I am, having a vacation comes as a rare event. Last week, however, my husband took a few days off from the daily grind at the office and, after packing up the Jeep to the hilt with luggage, provisions and our two dogs, “Dandy” and “Dasher,” we headed south to the beaches in South Carolina.
I wish I had more time to attend and review the many excellent visual and performing arts programs in our area, but I don’t. Occasionally I do attend a local program and then am inspired to write a review of the program for the Sentinel.
