After a long day of futzing around, finishing painting wood boxes, signing, pricing and packaging prints... the kids and I had 'had it'. They were feeling my stress. What saved us? Creating a natural disaster in and outside of the Playmobil hospital that resides on the coffee table and listening to the hilarious David Sedaris. (I treated myself to his new book on CD when in Portland... 30% off at Powell's Books!) There is nothing like his writing and his delivery.. Love him.
