First, thanks to everybody at JC Birdlebough HS (Phoenix NY) for a great day. I was able to give all of my presentations in the library which was awesome. Being surrounded by books has a soothing effect on me.
Below you’ll find some photos taken yesterday at my favorite bookstore, River’s End Books in Oswego, NY. The two sweet girls are Ashley Gessner and Bridgette Doran, two seniors at Oswego High School. They are the kind masterminds behind the Prom Project, a volunteer effort to make sure that everyone in their school who wants to go to the prom will have a nice dress or tux to wear. (Loud cheers for a fantastic idea!!! Louder cheers for smart girls who make their fantastic idea happen!!!! More cheering for a supportive community that is getting behind this fantastic idea!!!)
They are still accepting donations, if you’re interested. Go to their website for more information.
(Oh, yeah – I would like to say for the record that I hate the way I look in photos. Always. But I am trying to get over it. The guy in this photo is the Beloved Husband, Scot. He is extra Beloved right now because he is cooking an incredible Valentine’s dinner while I’m typing this.)
