The Thrill of an Amazon Box
There are few things quite as thrilling as getting a package from Amazon. Amazon usually means media for me, and I love media. Especially books.
Today’s box brought On Pointe, the readergirlz pick this month, and the 2007 Children’s Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market. I’m enjoying both. I’m especially excited about the articles in CW&IM. There’s some synchronicity in my life, as the only book at the airport that looked interesting was Death Dance, leading me to read two books about dancers at once. I don’t have dance class tonight because it’s spring break for most of the younger students, but I figure reading about dance should make up for it.
I wish I could figure out what my favorite Amazon box ever contained. Do you have a favorite package you’ve ever received? Especially a book you or someone else ordered for you, perhaps?

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
