What a treat to get out last night to hear the wonderful Judy Blume talk about her most recent book. There were so many people there that we were only able to get tickets for the atrium, where you viewed the event on a screen. Still, there was no distance between us and the feeling of the moment. It was clear how many lives have been touched and changed by this woman's work. Thank you, Judy, for sharing your gifts.
I finished a Book to Film Challenge title on time! Oh my goodness, I didn't think it would be so hard to fit these suckers into the months allotted. I loved putting my list together, but it's some pressure to follow through. All things considered I've finished 4/6 so far and I do hope to finish the other 2. And more importantly I really enjoyed The Jungle Book. I was suprized to see it's not all Mowgli-centric, but there are lots of different stories. Some that I adored, and a just a few that I wasn't so fond of. A great read and as it turns out my 50th read of the year, huzzah!
Monday was a very busy day (after a night of no sleep because of the heat and having an ear infection) getting the sleep gear back to the clinic and then rushing home to get my article done for the banana bread launch. I hope all my hard work shows because I put everything into it and crashed for the afternoon.
