Some presenters leave room for real life. They're inclusive. They raise your awareness and increase your possibilities. I heard such a presentation on Thursday. I felt more empowered in my writing as a heard successful writers tell me something I'd forgotten about--that a writer is engaging in an act of faith--faith that the words will connect with an unseen reader--that the magic lies in what the reader does with the white space between the lines of text.

It's easy to get to the Davis Conference Center in Layton just take the Syracuse exit as you head north from Salt Lake, then instead of turning left to head out to Antelope Island, turn right and look for the two towers. The Center hosted this year's spring meeting of UELMA, the Utah Educational Library Media Association. I didn't attend last year's meeting, but did get the luck of the draw to attend yesterday.

Matchless March

Originally uploaded by rfin.

"March the best month of the year? You've got to be kidding? There's not enough snow to cover the ground, all the leaves are off the trees. It's not exactly nature's best."

"But it is now. There may be another big storm, perhaps our last. I'm looking forward to it. It's warmer. Spring officially arrives. But most importantly it is now. It is the only month I can live in. I can look back or forward, but I can only make the best of this month now. That's why it's the best."

"Oh, that's what you meant."

A great quotation:
"Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action."
-Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
