That’s right, born April 13, 1963, Mary — the protagonist in Winter Light — turns 59 today.
And deep down delighted, because as a teen, she never expected to live this long or have such an interesting life. She still isn’t sporty, but walks daily to keep her cholesterol down. She’s disgusted beer now gives her indigestion. She’s become a voracious reader, though mostly of nonfiction revolving around history and current events, and she travels galore, or did until the pandemic.
And yes, she still loves Sno Balls.
