In a Cone of Silence

This post is also available in: Spanish

Sunday was January 8th, and as some folks know, that is the day that Isabel starts all her books! (Read more about the date here.) I tried to get some information out of Isabel about her new book but she called me a name en español that I think was rather derogatory. I can’t be sure, though, since the language side of my brain is defective. Something in her tone, however, led me to believe she wants her space right now.

Willie was at the office today and his new book, The King of the Bottom, is coming out very soon, so that is pretty exciting.

Here is my next big challenge: I am determined to intervene in Isabel’s footwear choices. See what I mean? This has to stop. She is injuring herself and I am worried about her. Surely there is an option for this woman? Sensible shoes are clearly not in her vocabulary or her closet but I have to do something. She will say I am a Berkeley-dwelling, bad-shoe-wearing hippie, but I can take it. I have been called far worse. Any shoe suggestions are welcome, especially from short, South American friends who are also crazy about their shoes. Surely someone else has had to go sensible? There must be a fashionable way to go about these things….

    I eagerly await another beautiful story. I have read and re-read many of her books and I’m fascinated each and every time. I hope in my lifetime, I’ll be able to meet such a motivational and successful woman.

    What about a pair of Goofy’s stinky shoes? LOL! just kidding! Say hi to Isabel… (my wife used to drive her grandkids to school from Celia’s or Nico’s home when we lived in California)….
