I scream, you scream, we all scream for...breakfast?!
This Saturday I will serve as Herrell's Ice Cream's "celebrity scooper" for their second annual Ice Cream for Breakfast fundraiser to benefit Whole Children. I'll be slinging ice cream from 9-10 AM. The fundraiser will go onthrough noon, and after I clean up I'll be signing books at Booklink Booksellers at 10:30. (Proceeds will also benefit Whole Children.) It all goes down in Thorne's Marketplace in Northampton, MA.

I had the pleasure of running workshops on writing to third and fourth graders at Buker Elementary today. They collaborated on stories about a bird firefighter, a pickle thief, a nose that plays football and a piranha teacher. Don't you just love their minds?!

I bribed the pugs with treats to get a few sketches in.
Our kiddo said this on Chirstmas morning. Did your children have any zingers?

Morning coffee and the TED Radio Hour on NPR. The recent show is all about Joseph Campbell's theory on the hero's journey...and I am beyond thrilled and honored to be included in this episode. Not just because of the Star Wars theme or that George Takei is featured right after my segment (admittedly those are pinch-me items) ... but I had the opportunity to put the spotlight on mentors. And I had some amazing mentors—they changed my life.
For my educator friends, I hope that you can see your stories in the tales of my mentors.
May the Force be with you.
