Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

I am a careful marshmallow toaster,
a patient marshmallow roaster,
turning my stick oh-so-slowly,
taking my time, checking often.
This is art--
a time of serious reflection
as my pillowed confection
slowly reaches golden perfection.

From "Toasting Marshmallows"

           --Kristine O'Connell George, Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems (Clarion, 2001)
