Friday around the web: saying goodbye, library love, and Kermit with a banjo
Then there was the passing of Elmore Leonard. I could write a dozen posts on how he's influenced my writing, but I'll only be repeating what's been said by others. He'll be missed tremendously.
It's odd when someone you never knew personally, but impacted you anyway, dies. To add to the sadness: I just heard that a young writer friend passed away--we'll miss you, Amy.
It put a dark stamp on the week for sure. All best to the families, who'll be feeling this loss and such a deeper level...
what kids think the world would be like without libraries.

To end the week with a smile, here's Steve Martin and Kermit, playing some banjo.
Banjo music makes everything a little better. And Kermit, too.
Have a bright, happy weekend, all.
