Today, I’m sitting at my sister’s kitchen table in Indianapolis watching the robins’ nest propped on top of the porch light. The parent robins fly out for food and fly back to the nest, all. day. long. I can hardly look away. And today, the hatchlings are just big enough to poke their open beaks above the rim of the nest and yell out, “Me! No, me!” when the worm-winners fly in with lunch.
A good reminder of the world’s real, physical wonders.
It also reminds me to tell you that while I sit here staring, I’m also traveling the blogosphere for the next month. I’ll be appearing in interviews and guest posts, as well as being featured in reviews of My Ruby Slippers. Brave new world.
You’re invited along, and your comments will often enter you to win a free copy of My Ruby Slippers.
Stay tuned for my next adventures. I’m going horseback riding in Yellowstone in a few days. And since I’ve never been on a horse, there could be tales to tell.
Meanwhile, here’s how to follow along on the blog tour while sitting at your own kitchen table:
