The pre-Christmas tour rolls on with a visit to 123 Grow With Me, my anchor in my old home town, Madison, CT.  These folks always welcome me with joy, and it was especially gratifying to see the two and three-year olds up and boogying.

Tueday found me in Alpha, NJ at the Alpha Public School for a holiday show.  It dawned on me that these are the hardest gigs I do: K through 8th grade schools.  It's as wide a cultural divide that there is.  But it works.  The older kids come back to being kids, the teachers provide the glue, and the school celebrates being a community.  Thanks to the older kids for showing the way for the little kids.  We had a ball.
