My publisher for my new book, THE TRUTH, My Secret Diary, I’m Ten, I’m Smart and I Know Everything, just told me to look for the proofs. The book was not in the mail today. But I’m getting very excited. That means that within 4 to 6 weeks I’ll be able to share my book with you. Are you wondering a little about the book? It is a diary and a very special one. The little girl who writes in it knows so many things that we have forgotten as adults. She knows for instance, that it is not nice to swear. Do you have strong feelings about swearing? I certainly did when I was a child. I still don’t like it, but I’ve been blunted by living in a society where swearing is so prevelent. The little girl would encourage me, I’m sure, to still not like it and to be very careful to always use fine speech. She also knows that silly arguments just waste our energies and leave us not feeling happy. She is so right about that. Why do we seem to need to learn that lesson over and over again?
I hope we can have many conversations about the wisdom a little girl can help us get back in touch with!
