Monty-cat always joins us.  I think he was influenced by Dewey, (the library cat) by Vicki Myron.

I was influenced by Tootle (Gertrude Crampton, 1945), the train who had to learn to “stay on the rails no matter what.”  I hated that book.  Poor Tootle was broken, could have no fun any more.  I just found out that as of 2001 Tootle was the 3rd best selling hardcover children’s book in English.  That’s sad.

I was also influenced by The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (1911).  I so wanted to be Dickon, who spoke to the animals and knew all about nature.

And then there was Report to Greco and others by Nikos Kazantzakis.

And…

Come, join us for a fun evening.  IMG_1303
