So whoa. The past few weeks have been madness.
Fun, glorious, overwhelming madness.
I traveled across the country to get my little sister hitched.
She tied the knot. I got to stand next to her.
I took a picture of Thomas Jefferson’s backside in the lobby.
I attacked the LA SCBWI conference with all the excitement of a hyper squirrel and all the daze and glaze of an overtired zombie. New friends, fresh ideas, and all the courage in the world.
One of countless unreal moments (seriously, I danced in a flash mob. Many, many moments.) was this panel of picture book creators Jon Klassen, Antoinette Portis, Dan Yaccarino, Eugene Yelchin, and Lee Wardlaw.
Fires aren’t funny, WHOOP is.
WHOOP is the kooky, mushy word that represents my heart right now. Family, fun, and a big fat AMEN for picture books.
