Great New Blog

Quick note to draw readers' attention to a wonderful new blog to which I've just linked--Maira Kalman's "Pursuit of Happiness" blog at NY Times.

Maira Kalman is an artist who has illustrated quite a few children's books, along with one of my all-time favorite books, Strunk and White's Elements of Style, whose lapidary principles for good writing I constantly betray in my own verbose Southern-Gothic ruminations.

But never mind, as Ms. Latella used to be wont to say.

And meanwhile, please check out Maira Kalman's blog. As an artist, she draws as well as writes. For anyone seeking an upbeat read in these cold gray days of winter, this is a great blog.
