Perfect, Diane! I can just see you doing this--a squirrel in the stacks finding and gathering bounty.
Well, Violet, I've been called many things, but I don't believe I've ever been called squirrelly! I like squirrels, so I'll that it as a compliment! :-)
Back in the day, I remember coming home with a zillion rubber bands on my wrist. Would have been much nicer to collect words and thoughts, I think... assuming they weren't grumbly ones.
No, not grumbly words, mostly lines for haiku, or a topic to research, or a plot idea for a picture book.
yes i know about that 'pocket of scraps'; have a nice daymuch love...
Gillena, I have a awful habit of sticking those scraps under my keyboard at home. Would you believe I'm typing on an elevated keyboard?
