I've just received copies of the first two in the being-newly-republished Anastasia Krupnik series. These two have introductions by me (I don't thnk the rest will) and it was a lot of fun to re-read them, re-think them, try to recall the mindset when I wrote them  back in the 80's. (Actually, the first one was n the late 70s!)  Suddenly I remebered the answer to the qustion How did you get the idea for..."  Most often that is unanswerable, but Anastasia did in fact, have a real-life origin, a real-life person on whom she was based. It was fun, recalling that and writing a bit about it for the intro.

And the DVD of THE GIVER movie is out now, with extra bonus material that I loved watching (no, not the interview with myself; I didn't even bother watching that!)  What I especially enjoyed was seeing the scenes they couldn't include (time restrictions, boo hoo) of the boy and the baby out in that vast and glorious landscape.

New England weather has wrecked a number of plans lately...a meeting canceled when the other person simply could not get here from New York, as planes were delayed and canceled in wnidy, icy rain this past Tuesday. If that storm had been SNOW we would be buried now.

'Tis the season to be jolly. I have actually gotten all of my Christmas packages into the mail, and a lot of Chrismas cards as well, and last night delivered a birthday gift to the one grandchild who has a December birthday...(his fourteenth. It seems like yesterday that he was born. When his dad when to pick up mom and baby from the hospital that December, his car slid into a snowbank. I was babysitting with the two year old, and I recall my son coming back into the house, and I said, "That was a quick trip!" ...then realizing he looked a little stricken and was dialing AAA)

Happy Holidays to everyone! When I was a child, books were always an important part of our Christmas gifts.  I hope that is still true for most people.

afford to take the waves, could not stand the rough can not become strong. The caterpillar does not go through the painful transformation, how can the cocoon for the beautiful butterfly? Eagle not through the wind knife snow sword tempered, how can show all-powerful heroic? Carp without the bust of the bust of the sea, how can write the legend of the dragon? Failure is the university, bumps are wealth, suffering is gold, after a bath reborn, only the noble Phoenix; after bitter cold suffering, only Aoxue plum; after repeated hardening, only the scabbard Cheap Womens Nike Shoes Sale Sword; after the marshes, have the outstanding of us. Encountered when the ups and downs, we may have thought, plum blossom from the bitter cold, the sword from the sharpened front. The more hard the environment the more inspiring morale, the more talented people. In the adversity is not discouraged, not negative, can make a difference, is the so-called blessing, how can we know non-blessing. 'The Book of Changes', 'the Book of Songs', 'the Book of Changes', 'the Book of Changes', 'the Spring and Autumn', Qu Yuan and Fu 'Li Sao', Sun Zi Bin and repair 'art of war' ' The ancients cloud: there are aspiring, things actually into the most drastic, Bai Qin Qin Guan was the end; painstakingly people, days live, hardships, three thousand can be swallowed.Encounter ups and downs, we may have chosen, is to continue to struggle or to give up? Is it challenging to meet the challenge? Is the more frustrating Nike Free 5.0 V6 or depressed? Is willing to fall or try to save themselves? In fact, failure and success with the pain and happiness coexist, ups and downs contain opportunities, frustration contains the harvest, twists and turns hidden philosophy. Rough is both a successful paving stone, but also the will of the touchstone, is the ability to grind the stone, laughing on the rough, the rough as a driving force, rough has become a cross, an experience, a harvest, a pleasure, It will let us momentum more foot, more enthusiastic, more confident. Encounter ups and downs, we may know, the tree grow up, to accept Cheap Nike Shoes For Men the wind and rain; people want to mature, to accept the ups and downs. Rough, such as tempered, so that we can make a sharp edge; rough as a mirror, let us three provinces of my body; rough as the razor, let us jade into the device; bumps such as notes, let us life like song. Ups and downs can make people calm, bumps can be tempted to think, bumpy can be thought-provoking. Monotonous experience is always indifferent, flat years are often dull, smooth life must be eclipsed, when you look back, so that we are profound those rough experience, despite the pain but memorable.When we are bumpy, we may be grateful, it allows us to understand the meaning of life, it allows us to taste the taste of life, it makes us through the bitter music, it makes us sharpen the tough character, it allows us to accumulate Lessons learned. The sun always in the storm, the miracle always in the doom, we often in the ups and downs of the world to see the most beautiful scenery, not back down, do not give up, bumps will make our lives become more colorful, bumpy to our Will become more perseverance, bumpy so that we become more mature, more wise, more heroic, more exciting, more courage to go forward. When we are bumpy, we may realize that success is born in the ups and downs, we can not conceal the traces of rough, can not ignore the ups and downs of the existence. A lot of time, rough is not terrible, terrible is not indifferent mentality, no courage to face, no victory over the wisdom, not even stand up and perseverance. How many ups and downs encountered luck, can walk through the ups and downs will be able to save our often is their own. Let us enjoy the ups and downs of the process, the harvest of the bumpy cocoon, the pain of calm, calm some, calm some, calm some, rough what is considered, big deal from scratch again!Weeds I am a grass, a weed, tough but not cold.Friends began to laugh at me, how do you change such a personalized signature ah? Say it is grass, or weeds. I just answered them because I liked, like the grass strong, like her up the kind of spirit. No flowers, no tree height, I am a no one knows the grass, never lonely, never worry, will passers-by smile, the sun will be the public father, although I am small, but the same unique. In this world full of unknown, no one will win the love of many people at the same time. However, different ideas will bring different conclusions. They told me that the wind mother did not like me, because she felt the grass is too fragile, too ignorant, too naive, and therefore will come from time to time to attack, there is no sign, no one will come to notice, as suddenly. I began to cry, in the heart really do not want to hate, I hope everyone likes, but then I laughed, because I know the wind is like my mother, because I am fragile, so she will worry about this I Can not afford to wind and sun, can not afford any hardships. After the Authentic Nike Football Boots storm will appear rainbow, I am beautiful to enjoy the beauty and warmth, after a moment the sun father gave me such a story, in ancient
