Visiting with Jim and Michele and Angie on First Friday, Gallery Night at Jim's Studio.
Today I was so happy to find a long lost Christmas gift, a journal from my friend, tucked deep away behind some folders in a book shelf. A poem is to begin on the blank pages.
Also read PENNY AND HER DOLL BY KEVIN HENKES.. lovely chapter book that shows a nice way of naming things that are special.
Haven't posted for awhile. Going through some difficult times, but looking forward to Spring and warmer weather.
I've always liked this quote from a favorite person........

"At it's best story telling is an art. And when you are dealing with art, any kind of art, your pleasure in making it is what matters most."
Marion is one of my favorite writing teachers.
