I'm proud to tell you about this one, because the lady is almost a relative. Well, I guess you could stretch things and call her a relative: a second cousin by marriage, or something like that. She's Cliff's cousin's daughter.
Were it not for Facebook, I wouldn't even know who she is. I've heard Cliff talk about her mother Willa, and her aunts and uncle, about the times he had with them as a kid.
I knew her grandmother, Cliff's aunt: when Cliff and I were in Versailles, we'd go by and visit, in her later years.
I was "friended" on Facebook by a couple of Cliff's cousins, and later got a request from this Angela.
"Angela who?" I wondered. "I don't know any Angela."
When I saw Cliff's two cousins were mutual friends of hers, I knew this was some relative of Cliff's.
This happens a lot on Facebook. I usually go ahead and friend them, then never think about them again.
But somehow as I was poking around on Angela's wall, I saw she had a blog.
(If you aren't familiar with Facebook, I realize how ridiculous all this "friend" and "wall" stuff sounds.)
I was blown away by this lady's writing, so very introspective and thought-provoking.
She's a genuine author, folks; she just hasn't written her book yet. Or maybe she has, but it hasn't been published. How would I know? I barely just found out who she is.
Go meet Angela at her blog, "If My Life Were a Book".
