Machaelle's Pivot Scrapbook

This is a special series of photo galleries Machaelle has put together for all of her Pivot readers.

Here, glimpses from her scrapbooks add to the experience of what you learn from her memoir, whether it be your first or your fourth reading! Had she included photos within the chapters of Pivot, quite a number of pages would have been added to an already thick book.

Throughout these galleries, you'll see page numbers in brackets. This refers you back to the text in Pivot that goes along with that photo.

Enjoy the newest installment, some of what Machaelle shares of her time after Europe and before leaving Washington, D.C. to move "out to the countryside."
