Three good things.
Today is green up day in Vermont! I haven’t gone out yet, because I just got back from my first ride on Duchess, my new to me 3-speed English bike. We tootled around town, taking all the side streets. I was a bit wobbly making my turns, but all in good time. I plan to get some padding for her seat (I see where the expression tough British upper lip comes from) and a lovely wicker basket. So that’s the first good thing.
Second, I will be on the radio tomorrow at WJSC, 90.7 FM at 5 PM if all goes well. It’s my first radio interview ever, and it is a good place to get my feet wet. If I bobble, feel free to laugh, as I’ll be laughing too.
Third, I am having an author talk at the Lanpher Library in Hyde Park on May 10th at 11 AM. I should have some books to sign and sell, if the publisher can get them to me on time. I’m looking forward to this talk. My experience with my daughter’s class this past Thursday was very positive. The students asked good questions, and from what I could tell, I kept them engaged. Hopefully I’ll do as well with adults.
So there you have it. For me, this spring is a time for new experiences, with my bike, with my daughters graduating from their respective schools, with events around my book. By the way, the general consensus is that people like it. That makes me feel terrific.
