Guideposts magazine asked me to write an essay for their website about National Pie Day. I was somewhat reluctant to do it -- I had been feeling a little blue about life, a little lonely, and I was busy working on my next memoir (about my misadventures living in the American Gothic House.) But I said yes, and wouldn't you know, while writing the piece I was reminded me of how magical the power of making and sharing pie can be. Even without making pie, just thinking about it lifted my spirits! Enjoy the article. And make sure you click on the link at the end for my apple pie recipe.
