Why I Love What I Do . . .

Just spent the best hour of my day with the C.I.T.s at Jewish Camp of the Arts. What a remarkable group of young teens!

When I finished presenting, one girl said, "When I found out about this, I thought it would be so boring, but it was so much fun."

Another C.I.T. had to leave for a minute to kiss one of the young campers good-bye.

And when one of the C.I.T.s wanted to buy a book, but neither of us had the couple dollars change, she said, "Please keep it an donate it to a Jewish charity." Will do.

Such a bright, enthusiastic, NICE group of kids. They reminded me why I love what I do.

This was my last speaking engagement until fall. Then I have some really interesting gigs to look forward to.

Thank you, Jewish Camp of the Arts!
