I love watching our beagle, Captain Jack Sparrow, sun on the deck right outside the window where I’m writing. He just soaks up the sun out of the planks of the deck.
Cheryl Wilke sent me the best email ever! It said, in part:
“My young daughter first opened your book, A Leaf Can Be, while waiting with me in a very long line at the post office at 4:30 p.m. (Yikes!) She started reading it aloud, and it wasn’t long before you could hear a pin drop. She and your story held the full house at standing attention. Beautiful!”
Those are the kinds of emails that make you chomp at the bit to get back to your writing, right? How nice of Cheryl to take the time to write me this note and to give me permission to share it. Thanks, Cheryl! And Cheryl’s daughter–oh, how I wish I could have seen her do this:>)
