I was just remembering my three visits to Louisa. My heroes growing up consisted of strong woman who didn't wield the power of Wonder Woman....but who wielded the power of her pen and taught me to fly.

I've always been a fan of hers; never visited her grave. I like the quote.

My Louisa is named for Louisa Greene Richards (founding editor of The Woman's Exponent) and this Louisa. Hoorah for uppity scribbling girls!!!

I so love that picture. I sent it to one of my children who always loved Jo March as much as I did.
