As I jump into the world of technology I am competing for time at the computer with my teenage daughter. She has a project due tomorrow---I have a blog to create tonight! Solution, I am 'cooking up a blog' on the family room computer with two and a half men (sitcom) in the background, while my daughter writes in peace and quiet upstairs at my computer. Oh well, good training for a high school librarian.
I spend my days, at present, in the middle of a busy library, surrounded by stimulating, boisterous adolescents. There is a lot of noise and most days, lots of learning. Learning to think, compose, and produce coherent prose in the midst of chaos is a life skill required for 21st century living.
