  2. Ellen, that is a beautiful picture. I am not writing poetry but I work in a school library and many students show me what they are writing and it is thoughtful work. Marilee

    1. Hi Marilee,

      Karl has taken many lovely photos and it’s a joy to share them here.

      Libraries are some of my favorite places. And from also working in schools, I can well believe the quality of the work you are seeing.

      Happy New Year!
