Stairway to Melon*

 *Full credit for the post title goes to Baltimore musician Howard Markman, who found the caption that I could only sense was out there, hovering.

I hope everyone's having a lovely summer.

GreenRow/WordPlay

I spent most of the day with the camper-writers of GreenRow Books' WordPlay camp. If you're in or near Ellicott City, Maryland, check out this charming independent bookstore. The cookbook selection alone is something else.

The faintest of rainbows...

...over my garage the other day. But as my friend said to me, even a faint rainbow is a rainbow.

Spring!

Finally, finally, spring is enough of a certainty that people around me are mulching. Winter, I am grateful to see you gone.

Skype in the Classroom

I just finished a week of World-Read-Aloud-Day Skyping, Quito to Ontario--fourteen virtual visits in total. I glimpsed Wisconsinites and Virginians in spirit-week pajamas, Ecuadorians in school uniforms, and the really cool reading bunk (actual bunk beds) of a New York State fifth-grade classroom. Technology and books, teachers and librarians, students and reading--they're all pretty magical. Thanks to Skype in the Classroom for serving as a sort of literary matchmaker between schools and authors. Thanks also to my dog Lulu, for not being grumpy that I woke her up fourteen times to wave at the camera.
