Yo S,

Once a year a try the "What If Project" with my students...it's the coolest thing ever! Here's some quotes from a group of 2-3rd graders:

Zoe - What if...limes could sing
Gabrielle - What if...double dodge ball was an olympic sport.
Kevin - What if...people wrote with sugar, instead of pencils.
Cheyne - What if...left was right. Then would right be left?
Scott - What if...tepees and wigwams could remind you to relax.
Yesenia - What if...flowers were more beautiful when left in pairs.

I find their writing amazing and I think it's because of the way they perceive their world...nothing but optimism!


Peace - 22

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)



  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??


    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
