      We have a bookcase in my upstairs office full of our most precious books. There’s a five volume collection of Jane Austen from 1833 that spent more than a century in Stoneleigh Abbey ( a house associated with Austen’s family and thought to be a model for Northanger Abbey; oddly, Caroline’s first close English friend, Pip, grew up in a house on the Stoneleigh property) and there’s an eight volume collection of Trollop’s Barchester Chronicles given to me by Bob Glynn and Joan Bok; there’s Taylor Ewing Junior’s copy of the Souls of Black Folk and two of Prince Albert Ewing’s law books. On top of the bookshelf are precious objects. Here photographer Bob Delevante has captured a close up of a teacup from my friend Ann, an early American mug from a surrogate mother, and the medallion ASCAP gave me when they inducted me into the Silver Circle along with Reba McEntire and Lyle Lovett in 2008.
