Recently, the slip asked attendees to complete this prompt:
My favorite childhood book is...............................
I got all sorts of answers, including titles like Old Yeller, Little House on the Prairie, Harry Potter, and Llama Llama Red Pajama.
But here was my favorite response:
|My favorite childhood book is..... short.|
Ha! It's a good reminder that not every person sitting through one of my presentations is an avid reader! More thoughts on this at a post I wrote for Smack Dab in the Middle. Also: brevity is good. :) AND it's a good argument for poetry, yes?
I'll be back for Spiritual Journey Thursday, and also, coming this Poetry Friday: Charles Waters and I will be sharing a cover reveal for CAN I TOUCH YOUR HAIR? Poems of Race, Mistakes and Friendship. Yay!
