Barbara jokingly refers to herself as a woman of a certain age. But I think she's an ageless angel whose writing is fluid and flawless and whose humor and compassion seems boundless.

I love her work. Let's see if I can link to her homepage now, where you can find more information on "Singing Magic" and "Mirror Talk":
