Still writing haiku!
spring dusk -
bunnies appear for nibbles
birds murmur to bed

Writing every day is a habit I won't break, but posting every day maybe.

As I wrote yesterday, I’m leaving next Tuesday for a 10 day trip with my students to the DC/Chesapeake Bay area, so will take a break from posting. We're doing half the trip in the city, all the tourist places, including being admitted to the White House! The other half will be in nature, studying the Chesapeake Bay habitat, experiencing creek snorkeling, kayaking and zip lines, just the beauty of nature! I'll try to continue some writing, certainly do lots of field journaling which we (students and adults) all do.
In addition to the all-encompassing organization of such a trip, there is a beauty to watching young adolescents grow a little in so many ways, socially, emotionally, mentally and physically. During the day we visit many places, experience many things, and while we do, we journal to capture those hours spent in new places. Students do this in small groups, touching base with us adults periodically. We allow them the freedom to grow, and trust that they will learn about many things, including about themselves. I'll have lots to tell after the trip!
See you in a few weeks!
