Thank You, Young, Old, and In Between


Sometimes I hit stretches where there are so many deadlines, so many miles to travel, so many home and work duties, and so little time, that I get a tad whiny, short of breath, and borderline surly. Then someone shares a photo like this–a young reader I’ve never met, in a hammock with The Scavengers during a weekend hiking trip in the mountains–and I’m reminded that whenever someone settles in with a book, that person is giving time to the writer. And time is the rarest of gifts.

So a heartfelt thank you to all the readers. I never take any of this for granted.

And P.S., for you Scavengers insiders, I am told that the young reader in the photograph also made her own SpitStick.
