What is it about picture books that keeps me paddling through the currents?

Right now, the currents are getting this new website set up. My old one was no longer editable, so had to face that struggle of facing this… and while it is a simple setup for many, I’m a “pantser”. Picture book people know that means I jump in and face the waves rather than read loads of instructions.

As an artist, prior teacher and dancer, I’ll validate myself by saying – I’m a kinesthetic, visual, learner. Even if I read directions and follow them to the letter, and get it right first time around… I remember what I wade through better. Eventually I’m a swimmer who will save myself from the wild wave… but right now…. this blog post is a mostly a test to see if it lands in the right spot.

bonnie - birth name with a boring story behind it. fireUrchin - acquired by life - it being a bioluminescent sea urchin with a sharp outer protection, poison for those who step on it, yet offering a glowing light from within . . . while living close to the ocean floor . . . and offering protection and rides to fellow sea creatures like lobsters, crabs, small fish, octopus. Deep sometimes dark explorations may transform into light making.
