Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Here are some links to liven up your holiday:

If this holiday is all about having a dream, I'd like to declare mine: I have a dream where I get a private audience with Mormon writer Emma Lou Thayne. We'd have tea and readings. Tea and readings--doesn't that sound nice? I was so excited to read her latest update in this insightful Des News article--and it's about healing.'s Emily Matchar blogs about her addiction to Mormon Mommy Blogs and the response is explosive. Read here.

(And the comment about the girl throwing rocks with her cousin Katie wasn't me. But I know who it was. And I am quite sure they weren't rocks, they were chestnuts from off one of our two fertile chestnut trees. Find me someone in our neighborhood who didn't get pelted by one of those, and I will show you my surprised face.)

Help out our friends in Australia and support the Queensland Flood Appeal auctions here.

You are not too late to have lunch with your favorite Provoan, my entertaining brother Christopher Clark (the Jolly Porter) and for a good cause too! Bid here.

I only have four spots left for sharing of essays at the St. George Reading on Thursday. Would you like to read something you wrote? We want to hear it! Email it to me, cjanemail @ gmail .com.

Lastly, thanks to generous Facebook associates, I updated my ABOUT page. I've had it on my To Do list for the last four weeks, but I've been dreading it. As it turns out, I really don't like talking about myself just for the sake of talking about myself (WHO KNEW?) Anyway, here it is. (There is talk it's not C. Jane-y enough, so don't get your hopes up.)
