The Spirit!!!

In front of a wonderful bookstore in Austin, Texas!

Just in case you did not know, I feel incline to tell you that my spirit is very, very important to me. I pay very close attention to my spirit, and I make sure that my spirit stays in good shape by doing things that give me the kind of joy that the world just can’t take away.

Now, everybody knows that I love books and writers and cycling and plays and folks AND where I live. Yes, I am madly in love with the DC area, because every single thing that I love is readily accessible, and therefore my spirit gets fed quite often with things that bring me "unspeakable joy!”

I want to give you a peak into things that feed my spirit and bring me complete joy:

Working with teachers..... I absolutely love working with teachers!

This guy right here... I got a rejection that crushed my soul, and this guy put me back together and sent me along my way: Cornelius Minor! 

So, I love this guy, because he writes great books about teaching:The Kelly Gallagher!

I was on a panel with these two ladies. FUN FUN FUN!!! Rose Brock and Elizabeth Partridge!

My student wanted to go inside the African American Museum, and my friend, Carolyn, and I were able to make that happen....

So, the famous Ben’s Chili Bowl celebrated its 60th anniversary this year, and YES, there is band that is made up of police officers, and they are GREAT! 

My dear friend Sonya, worked some magic, and at the last minute, I was able to do a seven day cruise with these awesome folks..... You got to love your friends who bring you on at the last minute. Thanks Sonya! 

Cycling, Cycling, Cycling... I love cycling, and I really love it when I get to cycle with great folks. The DC area cycling community is AWESOME!

Writer, Writers, Writers... I love writers. And these two....Clint Smith and Darnell Moore. (SWOON!) 

Yep, we scored tons, and I mean tons of AP literature papers, but we also made time to connect and have fun. Love these ladies! 

Went to a book signing, AND in the audience was The Corey Booker....

These two at the same time: Clint Smith and Judith Soriano.... A writer and a person who loves writers as much as I do.

I stumbled across this wonderful book store in Charleston, WV, and lo and behold, I got to meet this Vietnam Veteran, hear him talk about his book, and get his autograph. 

Yep, his book is titled I Can’t Date Jesus! His book talk was delightful just like him: The Michael Arceneaux!

My Tuskegee Folks.... FAMILY!

The Jesmyn Ward..... I think that’s all I need to say. She is THE TRUTH! 

Y’all, I know we are all busy, but don’t ever forget about your spirit!
