    Isn’t it lovely how reading works… one delicious quote affects us in so many ways; not only changing perspective, but to open up a whole new reading experience. I’ve put her on my list.

      Agreed! I have Celia’s Song on my list, but I when I looked up her other work, I was surprised to see how much she’s done that I didn’t know about. If you get to her first, let us know what you think!

    I work with children, and I think about this all the time, since young kids tend to be very much ensconced in their own universes… and, of course, we all know that some adults never moved out of them. 😉

      You’re right – kids spend a lot of time in their own little worlds. The good thing about kids, though, is they are like little sponges just waiting for someone to teach them about all the other worlds out there.
      Working with kids is what I did too, before I had some of my own. 🙂
