A Walk in England

One of my daily walks here in England is a circuit of the TASIS school's campus.  Here's a little commentary with it:

  1. Is that a little pond? Are those animals? It might be my eyes but it looks like a few horses or cows. How amazing to be writing WTM in that setting. Do you think it helped to be so far from the geographical center of your story?

  2. It looks like a beautiful and inspiring place to walk.

  3. It certainly looks sunnier at TASIS, England than it is at Zurich International School, Switzerland today.

  6. brattcat: Yes, a pond, but no animals there (although very nearby there ARE cows and horses in pastures), and yes, I'm certain it helped to be so far away from the geographical center of WTM--it gave me needed distance and needed longing.

  7. So lovely to see a place of inspiration for you and even better that it at a school! I have an unrelated request~ I have a group of 5 fourth graders who have been meeting 2 or 3 times a week in my library to run their own book club. They have just chosen and begun to read Ruby Holler. I'm wondering if you would consider skyping with them and participating in one of their conversations. I know this is a big request and maybe not the right forum. You can contact me at my school email. Thanks for considering!

    Many thanks!

  8. Amy: Thanks for your note. I'm sorry I'm unable to Skype with your students, but I hope they enjoy RUBY. Please send them my special greetings.
