We have been experimenting with ideas for the cover of our book. "It will be so easy to take our own photo, so we don't have to worry about permissions, royalties, etc." Yeah, right! And after a couple hundred shots, we got a little punchy... and instead of flower blossoms in a bowl, we tried two teeny plastic babies-- one white, one black -- in a tiny birdsnest. Well why not? Doesn't that image suggest creative caregiving to you?
We're having fun! Thanks again.Lorraine and Maggi
It's that time!
Tuesday, July 19th. The deadline for our Kickstarter Project. And we are awed and honored to know that all 54 of you (plus the "other two of you")... are so enthusiastic about this book. We will be processing the rewards in the next couple of weeks, and will be in touch because we need your addresses to mail them to you.
How can we thank you enough? We will certainly try to create a manuscript that will inspire you, make you smile, and give you confidence to care for your loved ones with all the creativity you bring to it.Many many thanks for all your help! - Lorraine and Maggi
We are so delighted to hear from you, and to learn that we are not alone in sensing the importance of this new focus on caregiving. Some of you have emailed, some have called, some have stopped us on the street... to express interest in being involved with this project. We want to include all of you. And this overwhelming response from the financial backing effort will make it possible for us to include more and more people, more home care agencies, more retirement facilities, and more ideas. We, of course, plan to be open to how this book takes us in even new directions... but for now, your support will allow us to create an even better, more user-friendly book... maybe even in hard copy if the enthusiasm continues through this weekend, to our deadline of the 19th. Thank you so much. (even thanking you seems lightweight compared to our deepest sense of affirmation!)
Here is another video we hope you'll enjoy. Picture someone in the Emergency Room, moving the water pitcher to roll this out on the tray!
