This Year, I…and You Can Too

this-year-i

This year, I…

…navigated public transportation with a blind friend

…fell in love with frilly underpants

…learned to be kind from a missed opportunity

…re-imagined a beautiful miracle

…traveled in Kenya, Ghana, India, Brazil, China, and Pakistan

…had a food fight that renewed a friendship

…saw a yard sale in a whole new way

…slept on a roof

…defended a nickname

…chased the wildest color

…fiddled with some instruments

…met some amazing women: Ada Byron Lovelace, Elizabeth Blackwell, Miss Moore, and others

…watched a spider teachย weavers to make beautiful fabric

…pursued a discarded hug

…made a mess in a museum

…planted flowers

…danced

…watched kite-fighting from a roof

…made socks into a soccer ball

…played hide-and-seek with an elephant

…found potential

…shared a cherished sandal

…met a man who could fart tunes

…explored a legendary bookstore in Harlem

…cheered for biscuits mixed by a tornado

…and watched a class of students transform.

This year, I read children’s books.


And you can too. A list of my 120 favorite picture books that I read inย 2016 can be found here.ย
