Aesop's Fables, Part I

A Baltimore Tale
Book Arts in Baltimore 2013 is all about Aesop's Fables aka A9
My biggest fans are children under eleven.
Every summer I teach a group of children
book arts and storytelling.

This summer I took down a few children's books 
from my library and had
them select the ones they wanted to read.
At first, they selected all the modern children's books.

After lunch when they were "playing," one
child pulled out an old, tattered edition of
Aesop's Fables 
and began reading it to the group.  They 
didn't stop reading and laughing until they 
reached the end.  

Lesson: We can learn a lot from children.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
