You know when you meet someone and, even before you’ve even said ten words, you that you’ll be friends? That’s what happened with Galit Breen. We had been loosely connected in the cyberworld, but I hadn’t met her in person until the Listen To Your Mother auditions in March. (This is the second time in a week I’ve mentioned this audition, so clearly these peeps are amazing. Stay tuned for information on the 2014 auditions, because I’m going to insist that you submit something. If not for the Twin Cities show, then for your local show.) Anyway, Galit held out her hand, and introduced herself, and I said, “You!” and gave her a big hug. I just knew. And I was right. (Of course.)
A few weeks ago, Galit and I met at a diner in St. Paul, and we talked and talked. We talked blogging and writing, branding and books. We talked about kids and teaching and the power of women’s stories. I could have spent all day talking to her. And I was thrilled when she agreed to be part of the blog book tour. So please check out her amazing post about Ready for Air. You can also read her review on Everyday Family. Thank you, Galit!!
