  1. My friends have new books, just released or about to be: Arree Chung’s book, “Ninja!” , Brian Won’s “Hooray for Hat,” and the new edition of Judy Blume’s classic novels, illustrated by the lovely Debbie Ohi!
  2. The happy realization that I know so many talented people that I can hardly keep track of what they all are doing.
  3. Reading this, which I’m sure you read in high school, but somehow I missed out on a few classics. Also crying at the end of this. (I weep easily.)
  4. This red scooter, and the owner who didn’t move it until after I was done with the drawing session:
  5. Plein-air painting with my mom. Why is painting outside so much harder than in the studio?
  6. This umbrella:umbrella-colors
The Enemies of Growth
Happy Mother's Day!
