When Rivers Burned Award Winner and KidsFaithGarden Post

After a summer break, I'm back with some wonderful news. 
When Rivers Burned: The Earth Day Story won two awards, a Green Book Festival award in history 
and a Moonbeam Children’s Book Award gold medal. 

KidsFaithGarden Guest Blog
Today is a busy day for me. I'm also appearing as a guest blogger on Nicole Lataif's delightful KidsFaithGarden website with a post on using imagination to promote kindness. I invite you to come join the discussion! 

Finally, I'd like to leave you with this musing on fall: 

Late September
I eat lunch under the glowering skies of late September.
Silence surrounds me until
I bite the succulent flesh of a peach,
Sweet remainder of summer, releasing 
The warble of goldfinches. 
Out of the corner of my eye I catch
The flit of a wing,
But it is only a yellowed leaf twisting in the wind.
Overhead, a winter jay calls.
