So after a full day of school visits, I came back to my hotel and walked around Durango. It was a brilliant, chilly, sunny afternoon. Very relaxing. It was nice to have some time outside. Except for the election coverage, I haven’t watched any TV this week. Probably a good idea. More time for journaling. This evening, I gave a talk for local parents and grandparents back at Sunnyside Elementary, which is also a branch of the Durango Public Library. It was great to have a chance to speak with the parents. It was a fairly small group – about 15-20, and some of the very interested students got a chance to come back with their moms and dads and ask more questions. I signed several more books, and was excited to see how the students decorated their school with artwork relating to my books. Thank you, Durango Public Library!
