    Heather, Enjoyed the podcast immensely…love that you’re drawing together with your kiddo…try this one, Drawing with Children, by Mona Brookes. Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is still a classic and just about anything by Danny Gregory will amuse/inspire. This one is mostly about doing, not analyzing your drawing. No straight lines required 😉

    Yes, your segues are breathtaking, my dear! Thanks for a lovely chat!

    In Maine, it’s always “ahhnt.” I figure it’s because we’re geographically closer to Britain than the other states are. Yeah, that could be a stretch, but we can always spot those who grew up elsewhere by that “ant.”
    It certainly does not sound pretentious to a Maine ear. If anything, calling me or any other aunt an insect sounds a bit offensive.

    And your pronunciation is a bit –hmm—off. Broaden your “a” a bit. Say Ahh-nt with pride!

    Love the show, btw. Have listened forever.

    The big deal about this chapter is the inflexibility of Pearl regarding any change in her mother, but as I read it I thought that Dimmesdale was being a little ‘dim’ about both the child and the mother. When he said to Hester, essentially, do whatever you have to do to pacify her because she’s scaring me, he clearly had no idea what Pearl wanted Hester to do, and didn’t stop to think that it might be hard for Hester. Hawthorne really doesn’t have much respect for Dimmesdale.

    I love this chapter. If I only had the chance to read one chapter for this project, I would have wanted it to be this one.
