So simple, yet I almost missed it… What to do for the letter “G”? Then the blocks stood out at me, and as I went to spell the word, my son came over to play with me. So easy to miss, just like their childhoods if we don’t take time to pause every day and just be with them.
The letter “E” sneaks up on thee… from all sorts of places…
Do you see it?
Also, “E” is for Ellie Lambert… don’t miss my interview with her over on my author site! Here’s the beginning:
I sat down with Ellie the other day now that some of the excitement and chaos of the events recorded in Flight of Blue have settled down just a bit for her and her friends.
Kai’s Aunt Ginger dropped her off at a favorite local hole-in-the-wall coffee shop. She showed up in a emerald green t-shirt, jeans with a big hole in one knee, and black flip-flops. Her toe-nail polish matched her t-shirt, and her curly hair was giving her ponytail holder a hard time.
We sat down with our drinks, I with my black coffee, she with an iced dirty chai latte. I noticed her choice of drink and scrapping my carefully crafted questions for a moment, asked her about it.
Me: So I noticed you got a dirty chai latte. I didn’t think you were the type.
(She deadpanned me at this point)
Ellie: It’s just a shot of espresso in a normal chai latte.
(I cleared my throat, and dug around in my bag for a moment looking for the pen that I’d already put on the table).
Ellie: Are you looking for this?
(Hands me my pen).
Me: Oh, er, thanks! Okay, let’s get started. So, Ellie, tell me, who is the most important person in your life?
