October 17, 2011 This has been a bit of a milestone day! The mail brought an advance copy of the book that discusses my life work: Don’t Leave the Story in the Book (Teacher’s College Press)
I had a few great hours with my talented and handsome illustrator and all things web consultant Nico Berry …
(by the by, our 3rd son) and I understand that the 3rd Edition of the book that my mother, Arleen McCarty Hynes, O.S.B. and I co-authored: BiblioPoetryTherapy: The Interactive Process should be in my hands by early November from NorthStar Press.
You will notice that milestone image I chose is a bit of a precarious pile–the stone itself balanced upon and balancing many others. That’s what I am hoping for this blog.
Both books owe so much to multiple communities of learning and loving; to relatives, colleagues, friends, and strangers who share my passion for finding ways to take advantage of one of the most powerful tools there are for learning and understanding: stories/poems/musings.
I will be sharing more ideas I’ve had or gleaned from gifted colleagues–classroom teachers, storytellers, artists, mentors and healers of all persuasions.
I count on visitors to this site to comment and share more–to be the skipping stones of this haiku
Skipping stones ripple
Boundaries are not limits
