Best New Idea

Austin Kleon, poet. I met him this morning when he was feathered on the Texas Country Reporter. He has the most clever idea that any English teacher could parlay into an exciting teaching episode to engage all students. Meanwhile, it looks like so much fun, I'm going to try it myself. How about you?

Last Day

The Texas sun dimmed a bit yesterday when I put my sister on the plane to return to her home in New Zealand. It was 100 degrees in the shade of our mother's porch, and she was headed back to the winter and freezing temps.
Her Texas family and friends will have to get used to missing her all over again. She is such a love.
