Those SCBWI folks always make my day! This is the third time in my life time that I receive a call from Lynn and Steve with good news.
The first time was eight years ago, when they announce that I had won the Don Freeman grant after I presented the very first illustrations of what eventually will become my book Just a Minute. A few years latter they honored me with a Golden Kite Honor.
This year? They left a message in my answering machine, to which I listen to after I came back from running with my dogs. This time my reaction was 1) to call back Lynn and Steve immediately, and 2) to try to do so by using my TV control remote.
That is what happens to my head when I am thinking with my heart.
