it is because of alexandra that, i suppose, i actually have a blog.shortly after meeting her (we have, luckily enough, several mutualfriends- all of them utterly marvelous folk) i found her blog.shortly after finding her blog i taught an art class and thought itwould be fun to track our projects on blogger (that lasted about8 weeks; this one has lasted a bit longer). shortly after all of thati thought a blog about children's books would be a fine idea.&now, some years later, i often wander back to alexandra's work andfind, in it and always, the reason her vision lit the spark that led to-well, led to something else altogether (for me). it is with certaintythat i say that her clear and beautiful eye- and her ability to shareher gifts with the rest of the world- will continue to add light. andthat light grows always brighter, just as good & generous sparks do.
