Starry, starry night...

Every Monday night for months I have met with my V-Day board getting ready for the show which will be next week! We have our meetings at Rachaels in downtown (I say that loosely!) in Angola. We have our own table and we spread out our notes and lattes and work for a couple of hours. The group of women on this board is stunning, hard working, and energetic. After we wrapped up our meeting last night, I stepped into the early dusk night. I caught my breath as the deepening blue sky held the Mound captive. Venus was the only visible brightness in the sky, but she shone as a solitude being. I stood and gazed for a few minutes before driving the old Jeep home to the House at the White Picket Fence.

Lou Ann

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
