I wake up every morning to three little fuzzballs going "wheek! wheek! wheek!"

Let me tell you something.
I don’t scare easy.
I say that as I jump out of my skin when someone pokes their head around the corner.
But when it comes to scary stories, I’ve been desensitized.
So it takes a special sort of creep factor to really unsettle me.
I love making things.
Much of my free time is devoted to crafting: embroidering my mon (Japanese family crest) onto a tea towel, knitting my daughter's Halloween costume, cutting a garden out of paper.
And until the library opens its own Makerspace, I'm making do by turning my family room into my own defacto Makerspace (much to my husband's chagrin).
Kindness has become the new buzzword.
Kids are sporting t-shirts with words such as Kindness is Cool!, Be Kind!, Choose Kindness!
Is wearing Kindness attire enough to teach children to treat others with respect?
I have been working in bookstores and libraries for most of my professional career.
