The world has begun to take stock in a few good things that have happened during the pandemic. I would include my Zoom visit with the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) as one of those surprise blessings. I had such a good time working on list poems with them. Take a look at some of their creations. A special thank you to Ms Catherine Bae, their amazing librarian, who organized this visit. The poem below is entitled SUMMER ROCKS by Mr George’s Second Grade. Isn’t it grand?!
It’s been a bit daunting, this new world of COVID-19. As difficult and overwhelming as it’s been, however, there has been an amazing outpouring of goodness from the world of libraries and authors.
While my spring school visits have been canceled, I’ve had some wonderful opportunities to still “meet” with children and families online.
I had one visit with my coworker, Ms Kate, from the Morrill Memorial Library. You may find that conversation here
Likewise, I was able to lead a Double Happiness poetry workshop online that Kate Messner posted on her blog
I hope you find a little time in the midst of this chaos, to nurture your writing and your self.
