what I'm going to listen and soak up today: I am in la-la-la-la-la-love with Jenn Grant's warm and delicious voice and I'm going to soak up her newest album "Echoes" today. Oh my goodness, it's the perfect thing to listen to on a blustery, fall day. Check this out.

a book I love:
I am currently reading "Miss Spitfire: Reaching Helen Keller" a novel, based on actual people and events, and I love it. I hope to finish it today. Have you read it? What did you think? I don't think it feels like a novel at all.

some videos you MUST watch: My sister in law Melanie...she gets my music obsession and every once in a while, she e-mails me links to videos she knows I will love. [Melanie, these gave me chills.] Love them to pieces. And I think this is the proof America needs, to realize that the arts are just as important in school as math, science, and reading. Look at the way these children come alive when they sing. Amazing! Click here and here and here and here. Bravo to PS22 and their inspiring teacher Mr. B!

a link you locals might like: My cousin Alicia, is working to gather up 99 other people who would like to see New Moon before anyone else and not at the unnatural hour of 12am. Click here and let her know if you are interested.
