The Small Things

Celebrating the small things this Friday.

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.  -Mother Teresa


1. Won a contest about Random Acts of Kindness.  My prize was     Brenda Ferber's new picture book!

2. Is off to a weekend revision workshop with Linda Sue Park.

3. Ate enchiladas with a beautiful assortment of admired writers, including; Charlotte Herman, Laurie Lawlor, and Marlene Brill and Miriam Nerlove.


1. Received an invite to host a poetry reading for National Poetry Month

2. Revised, revised, revised

3. Took a long walk in the winter woods and sat in a snowbank to watch snowflakes fall and the lake roll in.
