Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

The Amazing Zacchini
My friend, Koalagirl15, has three living children, two girls and a boy. The boy is her oldest. He is two years younger than Katherine the Great, but is easily eight inches taller with a shoe size double my own. If he hasn’t hit six feet in height yet, I imagine he will before summer. Besides being remarkable for his height, he is remarkable as a magician. He makes balloon animals, does strolling magic, performs card tricks, and more. Known to all as The Amazing Zacchini, he recently started both a blog and a website. I am writing this blurb today to feature the latter, as I just added it to “MyArtist Friends & Business Folk” in the sidebar. If you are in need of a magician for your next event or fundraiser, please visit his website, give him a call, or drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am sure he would appreciate your consideration.
