My friend Diana gave me permission to post this email. Her daughter Ruby will be four in June.
“Yesterday Ruby told me solemnly that she wanted to be a writer when she grows up. She was practicing making s’s, trying to make them look like s’s instead of 5’s, and I was zoning out listening to the radio, but hearing her say she wanted to be a writer really caught my attention. I said, “Really?” She said, “Yes. A writer. I want to write name tags, candy boxes, everything.””
So there you have it.
