Hello everybody!

My computer has been down but I am borrowing someone else’s because I just had to comment on this post. (For those of you who don’t know, “alohamora” means open in the Harry Potter books).

J.K. Rowling is an excellent author. Thank you for posting this video. I enjoyed watching her speak. I agree with her that imagination is very important!
