This will be my last entry for the Writer in Residence blog. It's been a good experience and I'm very lucky to have had this forum. Thanks to all who read the entries, and to all who support books and literature.

I spent the day in Waterloo and New Hamburg, at schools. Great kids, as usual. Really intelligent, thoughtful questions about the world, how it works, what their role in it can be. The teachers and principal do a lot to encourage such thinking and searching among their students.

Time to go. Thanks again.
