When essayist,  Phyllis Theroux wrote  a memoir, using her personal journal as the text, she removed most of the references to other writers and thinkers whose words she had copied down for  her own comfort and  inspiration. Over the years, she has shared these words with her friends and family.  But now, she  has gathered up the best ones and popped them into a fat glass jar called “Word Candy.”


Open a Jar…
