I threw out the old board books with their torn-off flaps and chewed corners...
Where, in children's literature, do we reward simple, enduring kindness and fairness, with a prize that children will actually want?
This year I will... read the books I've already bought?
In the land of strong tea and chiming clocks.
Solstice wildness and new starts.
Rejection makes me want to pull my chin fat right up over my head, and hide inside my own bubble until everyone has gone away
I know the best place in the world to play catch.
Broken is not the same as beaten.
Overwhelm is a place.
