This evening, as I was watching "The Ten Commandments" with my husband, I got curious about Anne Baxter, the actress who played the character Nefretiri in the film. So, I went a-Googling. This is what I found: Anne Baxter was the granddaughter of Frank Lloyd Wright. She died of a brain aneurysm in 1985, collapsing while hailing a cab in New York City. Her grave is located on the Wright estate in Wisconsin. One of her three daughters is a interior designer; another, named Maginel, is a Catholic nun who lives in Rome.
As I said, just some trivia.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
