Just watched a small sailboat come into the marina for fuel. It was under power, sails down, which made me think of the huge sailing ships of years ago and how they didn't have an engine to depend upon when the wind died down or when they had to navigate into small places. Amazing!

Started the ARC for A Room on Lorelei Street by Mary E. Pearson. It is fantastic! I love the edgy YA for older teens and this is one of them. The scene where she loses it in class and tells the battle ax of a teacher that her name, Zoe, has an e at the end is so true to the teen with such anger building up inside that erupts at the most inopportune times. Pearson also wrote David v. God and Scribbler of Dreams.

A short posting today.
