I've spent the recent two posts celebrating different parts of being at NCTE last weekend, and there is more to share. However, today I'm going to make a list of those tiny things which make my life so good, some touching NCTE as well.
v Meeting Catherine of Reading to the Core at the Slicer breakfast was terrific. We also happily connected at several other sessions, including one she wrote yesterday for Poetry Friday, about the poetry session that included Georgia Heard. Catherine always takes good notes, and explains things so well in her posts and I appreciate that very much. This time, the ‘little thing’ I loved is that she remembered and shared this quote by Matthew Fox and shared by Georgia Heard. I am so glad to have it, because I did not write it down! “The Celtic peoples…insisted that only the poets could be teachers. Why? I think it is because knowledge that is not passed through the heart is dangerous.”
