Bad weather and travel snafus stuck me in the Providence, Rhode Island airport for hours today. I left this:
This is fall travel... a combination of school visits, conferences, teaching, and retreating with the group I've been writing with for fifteen years. Yesterday, Plymouth; today, Philadelphia. And so it goes.
I'll be home Friday night. For now, thanks so much to Baldwin School in Quincy, Illinois; to The Rhode Island Festival of Children's Books and Authors in Providence, to my writer buddies on annual retreat with me -- thanks for the laughter and good food, company, stories, critiques; and hellooo to Moorestown Upper Elementary School and William Allen Middle School students in Moorestown, New Jersey! I'll see you in the morning.
