October and what a fall!

It is still October - for two more days. I am rushing to get this in so that I can say I blogged in October. I am embarrassed that I've not been more diligent it keeping up my BLOG but, dear friend, check out my calendar and you'll know why I have seemed - otherwise occupied: http://davidbouchard.com/speaking/calendar

There was a time when I insisted that my agent Chris get me home every five days, but the reason for that insistence is now 17 years old and cares somewhat less whether her dad kisses her good night or not. So I travel a little more in season. Summer and Xmas still provides me/us with the most amazing family time imaginable.

This fall has been the busiest fall since Chris and I began working together 16 years ago. Much has happened. I have three new books; The Great Law, The First Flute and The Song Within my Heart. Canada has a new government that has committed itself to better understand and communicate with Aboriginal people. Truth and Reconciliation has already affected my world as a touring
Aboriginal expert in literacy. The next decade could/should prove to be an opportunity not yet seen in Canada - for we First Nation, Metis and Inuit people.

I have a new book ready to go to print. Reading Red edited by Suzanne Keeptwo will make an impact. Things are soon going to change for Aboriginal people and I will be there on the front line. Very exciting!

That's it for October. I am off to pack for an exciting November. Off to Ottawa, Guelph, Calgary...

It is my sincere hope that you, dear reader, are as happy and healthy as I am today.
