I have admired Kate Christensen’s writing for a while now. She’s an award winning novelist who knows exactly what she’s doing. I could write a post about this, but that’s not what’s on my mind today.
My communication with Kate isn’t really real. I mean, we’re Facebook friends but, for the most part, I don’t really know her. Let’s be honest: How many Facebook friends do you actually know? Don’t get me started on this.
Anyway, I’ve always suspected she’s a person with a good heart. I found this out for real a few days ago on her blog.
Kate lives in Portland, Maine. Now, not only is she an award winning novelist, she also works in a soup kitchen, donating her time to those less fortunate.
How many novelists do you know who also work in a soup kitchen? She’s the first one for me and those women going to that soup kitchen in Maine are going to be in for a treat. Kate is quite the cook also.
It does my heart good to suspect that a person is good and kind and have it confirmed. Acts of kindness always gets to me.
We’ll be back on Sunday with another post.
