For the 3,519th time…

Hi everyone,

Today is my 3,519th post on this blog spot that Kathy Temean created for me in 2009. Bill Johnson at Highlight and others had urged me to get a website so I looked around for designers. The first note I sent to friends for recommendations was Ralph Fletcher. He, Ruth Culham, Rebecca Dotlich, Eileen Spinelli, and others gave me names and tips, and I eventually wound up going with Kathy. When Kathy completed my website, she said I needed a blog. I fought against it, lost, and here I sit, 3,519 posts later, saying for the 3,519th time, “Hi everyone.”

Today I look forward to a Zoom meeting with Kathleen O’Dell (Public Relations Director) and Stephanie Smallwood (acting Director of Children’s Services) at Springfield-Greene County Public Libraries to discuss what I’d like to do for a summer reading project with the district. I hope to do one or more videos providing tips about reading and writing poetry for the summer reading program. Perhaps I can use the videos for other programs elsewhere. I’m eager for the visit.

Yesterday, thanks to the expert direction of Marjorie Bicknell, Philadelphia Regional Rep for Dramatists Guild of America, Sandy Asher and I presenting our reading of JESSE AND GRACE. It was the first time a children’s work has been presented in the Footlights series. We drew a record number of registrations, for which we were grateful. For those of you who watched the performance, thank you! The event was recorded so before long we’ll be able to share it with teachers, librarians, and others who might be interested. More about that soon.

  1. Told you we’d still be doing projects together wherever we were living, didn’t I? And there you were, in FL, and here I am in PA, and we played 4th grade best friends side by side.! Thank you so much, dear friend, for joining me in this latest adventure. On to the next! Love and XOs.

    • You promised and you are a woman of your word! Thank you for inventing Jesse and Grace and leading the way from concept to last night, and beyond. It’s always such fun working with you. Sending Love and XOs. David

    • Good morning, Su! I know you packed a lot into yesterday and still managed to make it home just in time to tune in to the reading. Thank you so much! Hugs, David

    • Veda, you are such a good sport to give us your time to watch. We were delighted to see so many of “our” people in the audience. I loved it!
      Thank you again.

    • Thank you, Matt. A Tony at least. Maybe even a Richard or a Sarah. The sky’s the limit. The reading was recorded and is being edited so we can share it. Soon now I think.
