Answers to a Few Questions

April 21st, 2011

4-21-11All along my travels I am asked about my 3 children. Do they travel with you? Do all of you live on the bus? Do they support what you are doing?
Thoughts of the nursery rhyme “The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe” come to mind when I picture what it would be like with all of my children living on the bus with me. The 84 square foot living quarters of the bus is about the size of a walk-in closet. The bed takes up nearly one quarter of the space, Bogart takes up the rest it seems.
A recent blog I wrote, of a 7 year old girl named Corinne who gave me all of her stuffed animals as a very big act of kindness for children in the hospital, is such an inspiring story for all of us. Corinne gave me two big bags of all of her stuffed animals while I was waiting for my daughter to meet me for dinner. Soon after Corinne and her mom and dad left the outside patio area of the restaurant, my daughter Lizzie arrived. When asked about the shopping bags of stuffed animals by my chair, I told Lizzie how Corinne went home and brought back her stuffed animals to cheer up sick children in the hospital, to which Lizzie replied, “Dad, don’t ever stop doing this.”
