A Vow To Do Better

"Action expresses priorities." -- Mohandas Gandhi


Ok, I admit it. I've been blowing off this here blog a bit (but I'm not the alone one-hint, hint!). So, with the exception of a brief time out during my upcoming vacation, I've decided on the best course of action: a weekly reading recommendation, brought to you by yours' truly--ME!


Today's pick?


How to Build a House by Dana Reinhardt,


a rather fine novel about family, friends, & forgiveness; gettin' out, & growing up; and, last, but not least, everyday teens who think outside the box, build a house (seriously!), & make a difference. Sounds wretchedly cliche, I know, & perhaps it is, but still...as the story unfolds, it's hard not to simply sink into it.


Of additional note:


TEEN GROUP

WED 10/08, 4:30-5:30 PM


I know we agreed to start meeting @ 4:45--which we will do after this one last 4:30 meeting

(it's been on the calendar as such for months, so...)


(No worries, we'll probably run late anyways!) :)
