The Ah, the Aha and The Haha: a central message of the book
The Ah, the Aha and The Haha: a central message of the book

I’m sorry to say the books ended up on a truck to Cincinnati so I didn’t get them after all on Friday. But they are SUPPOSED to get on the correct truck this time and be here Wednesday of this week!

I have twenty something U-line book cartons with addressed labels on them, ready to send to Georgia and Jeff, Kathy and Curt, Kate and Rob, Gary and Mark, Lynn and Helen and a dozen others.

Another dozen have downloaded the order form, and I look forward to getting your books off within 48 hours of receipt.

I have started putting captions to the images that are either in the book or were in the running for inclusion. Do stop by the gallery. If you are not convinced this book is a good fit, maybe SEEING the images that inspired or enhance the writing will help you decide.

What We Hold In Our Hands: a Slow Road Reader Image Gallery now open for visitors!
