Next Book I’m Reading

THANK YOU to Susan Cain for writing this book. I intend to pick up a copy tomorrow and I expect it to be right up there with Rumors of Water as far as professional development goes.

  1. I’d love to have a glass of wine–or a cup of tea–with you, Marilyn! Besides, I can’t hear well in noisy places.

    P.S. I love your new banner!

    Love quiet and stillness….I’m easily overstimulated. A newer term has been ” highly sensitive “. My favorite time of day is early in the morning when the world is still asleep🙂
