Authors think of their writings as their children. Produced with infinite care, shown to a few friends, and lovingly tucked away in some obscure file where they sleep undisturbed. I came across one such file recently. It was entitled "Miscellaneous writings: poems, stories, essays, etc." I felt it was time to wake them for public scrutiny. So here they are. Please be kind. They're fragile.
The 1960's ushered in one of the most quickly wide-spread trends up until that time...the American cowboy. This was due in part to the acquisition of television into many of the homes of the baby boomers. All of us who were 'cowboys' during this time still feel a connection with each other. From that vantage point we moved on to the days of go-go boots and from there to being flower children and wearing peace symbols and fringed vests. Our clothing became a way of expressing who we are at an individual level, rather than just an expression of our class or socio-economic status, as had been the case in the past. We enjoyed being able to express both our collective spirit and our individual natures through our clothing choices. Perhaps we haven't always realized the extent to which clothing trends and experiences shape us into the people that we become on the inside. Is it possible that our character and integrity are affected by something as simple as our clothing? It's worth thinking about and remembering those significant clothing experiences along the way.

This book contains a collection of the author's previously published articles on early childhood care and education. Each chapter was written in response and reaction to particular events or contexts that were provocative. Many of the issues explored were stimulated by experiences with teachers and caregivers of young children, many of whom were also the author's students, as well as with other professional colleagues. These background experiences and events are described briefly in the introduction to each article.
