|This evening we walked south toward Fort Funston. Look what we found embedded in the |
rock wall. That bottle is labeled Lucas Gusano. I did a little research and discovered that
Lucas Gusano is tamarind flavored hot liquid candy. Who would have thought they would
have had something like that back in the Stone Age? What a great invention.

Wait! My new book SAY HELLO! came out last week. Here’s the story behind it:
I was visiting a school, doing a workshop with kindergarteners and first graders. As each child wandered into the room, I walked up and introduced myself. Ninety percent of the children didn’t have any idea how to respond. Some would shake my hand and look down at my shoes. Some would look up at the ceiling or over their shoulder. One kid spit out his gum, stomped on it, then grabbed my hand and wouldn’t let go.
This experience struck me as funny, sweet, and a little disturbing. I thought, “I’ll write a book about how to say hello!” The book isn't an instruction manual––it’s more of a collection of (sometimes silly) ways to say hi.
