realized today that I have never really lived anywhere I could
see the seasons change. California has been my home since I was
three years old, and during that time I've experienced and grown
used to the same weather all year round. It may be time to start
the past few days, the large pile of Bill Peet books I ordered
have been arriving in the mail two or three at a time, so every
day of this week has felt like Christmas. He's an amazing storyteller
and illustrator, and I will spend a little more time talking about
him and his work another day, when it isn't so late in the evening.
I have also been receiving wonderful e-mails from people thanking
me for referring them to good stuff like Craig Thompson's Blankets,
or any of the great films that were mentioned in previous posts.
I think these e-mails are flat-out awesome. I'll try and keep
you all updated on the good stuff as time goes on, and I just
wanted to let you folks know that I'm happy you guys enjoy the
a great weekend.
