According to my new summer schedule, Monday is Right Now day: projects I'm working on right now. I'm excited about having a somewhat organized plan to follow for the weeks ahead, that's also more than a little bit organic. And I'm excited about all the emails & comments in the past week about my blog. Thank you!
This is an ongoing project that I spend about an hour on each year (yes, one hour per year). I need to mention (again) that a driving force with me is not overcreating. There are so many people in this world, so many stories, so much stuff...I consciously make a point of restraining myself when it comes to making stuff. Maybe someday I will change my mind. Maybe someone will convince me that it's okay. But in the meantime, I try to use my time & resources in the most meaningful ways I can. This book takes very little of both.
I've been a reader as long as I can remember. What I can't always remember are the books I read. I tend to read slowly, thoughtfully, visualizing every detail. I usually read about 20 books a year. (Did you know Kate diCamillo reads over 300 books a year? Yikes!) At some point I decided to keep track of the books I read & which are my favorites -- in the hope that someday my kids will want to read what I've read. J. is already a voracious reader, so I look forward to the day she discovers this album.
