When Twitter is a-buzzing and I'm browsing, some days there are just too many blogs, articles, websites, etc. to check out and read thoroughly in one sitting. So, I always have an open virtual "sticky note" on my desktop, where I drag and drop the web address to read at another time.
I had about ten sticky notes each full with at least 10, 15, or even 20 items to revisit. Now that summer is here and I'm on vacation at my parent's house (where in the evenings there is only time for me because I'm not home thinking about everything on my to-do list), I have a little time to go back, read, reread and share.
I stumbled upon this poem from Kate Messner that I wanted to capture and remember.
Enjoy this excerpt of a found poem reminding us why we need to write and why I am so thankful for all who write books, illustrate books, and take part in any of the process of making books! Oh, and thank you Kate Messner for this treasure!
