Celebrating the Day Ahead

I am at Butler University with a roomful of teachers…and Lester Laminack, visiting scholar for the Indiana Partnership for Young Writers. You know it’s going to be a fantastic day. Add to it we are in a huge, lovely room looking out a wall of windows at a clear blue sky, bright autumn trees, and an old, stone university building.

Lester has started out talking about candy corn season… and segued into a discussion of the Southern tradition of eating tomatoes only in season.. and now is showing off pics of his granddaughter and bragging how smart she is..and now he has noticed the tree out the window…and he is reading Cynthia Rylant’s IN NOVEMBER… well, you can see I am telling the truth about my fantastic day!

    Oh, I love so much about your post. Wish I were sitting beside you listening to Lester Laminack. I can just hear his slow, beautiful drawl. A wall of windows, blue skies, autumn colors, majestic old buildings, candy corn, and then Cynthia Rylant’s In November … definitely autumnal bliss!
