My Latest over at Crafting a Green World: Record Album Covers into Things that are Not Record Album Covers
Right now, on this peaceful Wednesday morning, I'm sitting at the table with two kids who are freaking out because in our summer hiatus from work plans, they seem to have forgotten that work that is not completed on Monday or Tuesday does not disappear from one's life, but instead reappears at the table for Wednesday morning "schoolwork boot camp," (yes, I do call it this, because I'm tacky), not to be set aside for other, perhaps more pleasurable, pursuits until it is completed.
