Yesterday, I had two hours to spend at a nearby library. My daughter had a birthday party to attend, so I waited. Waiting was fun though. I planned ahead with notebook and pen in hand. I love to read children’s picture books and savor the text, thinking of ways to use the craft as lessons. This interest of mine is why R kindly and persistently suggested I blog. Due to still learning to juggle the family schedule, teaching, and writing, the latter seems to take last place. I am happy to say that I was able to write about seven books that I will be posting beginning April 1. Yesterday was a good day. I wrote my thoughts as well.
“Today I sat in a comfy chair at the library for two hours. I loved it. I savored 7 children’s books and wrote about them. I was lost in a word of words. In the peacefulness, I drift to different places and temperatures. I peek at history and meet people. I spy on authors and illustrators, seeking their insights of words. I’m focusing and practicing and dreaming.
Someday, I will be a children’s librarian. Someday I will write a book. Today I persevere.”
