Newton said, ". . . .an object in motion will remain in motion unless acted on by an unbalanced force." I don't really know what this has to do with anything, (and I hope my kids don't count as unbalanced forces) but it makes me seem smartish to start with it and gives me a good excuse to post this swinging video, which I love.
But, seriously, it's already late September, and I've been keeping in a whole lot of motion.
September, of course, means the start of a new school year, meeting the teachers, getting the kids clothing and supplies, and helping them to get in the general rhythm of things (a/k/a screaming at them to go to bed at a reasonable time and get their homework done).
|Holden, being totally awesome|
|Sam, loading the kayak early this summer|
My "paid" work -- my mediation practice -- has been slow in the actual money-making office visits, though not slow in clients wanting my endless and constant attention by phone, which I rarely ever charge for.
At any rate, I'm not complaining. I like to be in motion. I'm way more productive when I am.
Which leads me to my book(s) and my writing.
I've got a slew of fun book events coming up or in the works for THE PULL OF GRAVITY (school visits, Skype visits, author panels, etc.) most of which I am doing the orchestration for. It's a full time job, I tell ya, this marketing of a contemporary YA novel.
|At Bluestockings, NYC, this week with (L-R): Matt Blackstone,|
me, Arlaina Tibensky, Christopher Grant and Sarah Darer Littman.
Plus, he's read the first 50 pages of IN SIGHT OF STARS, and he seems to be digging that too.
So, alas, after a bunch of bumps and false starts, hope and adventure are on the horizon! ;)
|That's me in my spiffy swim cap, last week,|
getting in. My friend and constant "BETA reader" Annmarie is with me. She's a gem.
So fall is here, and I'm in motion. I hope you are all too.
