Reconnecting with the past
One of the nice things about slowing down — and having a book on the topic for that matter — is that you get to reconnect with people you haven't seen for a while. My talks this week at bookstores and libraries have been a delight in that regard.
At the Bellevue Public Library today, Colleen Patrick came up and said hello. I met her through my husband Paul's media connections way back when, but our paths haven't crossed for some time. It's wonderful to see her new successes and blog, too. Thanks Colleen, best of luck!
Earlier in the week, Lucy Hart showed up at Elliott Bay Bookstore. Lucy's a friend from my days in the Seattle Community College system, where she was a tech and graphics specialist at Seattle Central. Today she's retired but does a lot of visual work; she even had an iPod set up with video clips at my reading. Below are a few photos she sent of the session, thanks Lucy!
