berenstain bears : revisited

berenstain lecture
Meant to share this earlier: a snapshot from Michael Berenstain's wonderfully inspiring talk last week. It was very interesting to see the cross-section of people attending the lecture. While I couldn't capture them all from my vantage point, there were grandparents, college students, moms, dads, teens and toddlers, all eager to hear the stories behind the bears and have their much-loved books signed by the author/artist. The appeal of this family of bears is universal.

Some notes from the lecture:
1) Draw inspiration from the people, things and moments that surround you.
2) Don't be afraid to adapt and change with time.
3) If something works, recycle it!

I was at this talk! Everyone was so glad to have Berenstain on campus. I'm currently a junior at Elon. I began following your blog back home in Baton Rouge even before I ever began attending the university. I never realized you lived in North Carolina! soooo many coincidences happening right now.
