  1. I love the "passion and energy" as titles that define who you are ...

  2. It's interesting that writing is more than just picking words to describe or define who we are. It's picking fonts, styles, size, colours, images, text features and sequence or words. The hidden choices sometimes tell more than the words. What would Shakespeare have created with Smore?

  3. I love the "I am only me." This is a profound step toward self-acceptance and not comparing ourselves with others. Oops, your writing got me thinking of my own struggles (though here in a good way!!). Thanks for sharing and welcome to #DigiWriMo

5 Ways to Help Gifted Kids Find Their Gifts

When I work with gifted kids, I'm amazed by their lack of understanding about what interests them. They know how to surf the net exhaustively for Youtube videos that make them laugh, but not what skills and practices further their interests.

I had been to a few Maine county fairs over the summers I spent Downeast on the coast of Maine, so I knew what to expect. The 4H clubs mesmerized me.

At sixteen or so, I felt too old to learn how but man did I want to join that club.
