What to share???

Children weren't awake, yet

Researched park and found way too much information
what's a girl to do?

Startled by a Big Bird
we stared at each other for a while
my new camera and i aren't friends, yet
so . . only the moment to remember.

Imagined a new way to share old information
 next school term

new school bookings - 
have stories, will travel
who knew???

love & love,

Five Things

I was in the woods last week

It seems there's always a surprise around here

I purchased new hub caps
I laughed pretty hard when i discovered the old ones in my trunk

Our Weather has been Splendid for the last couple of days

Last week - on the last day of school
students and families stopped by my classroom to say thank you
(color me humbled)
Happy Weekend!
love & love,

Okay, this is one of the countless photos I've taken of benches.
i don't know WHY i take photos of benches.
This is in the English Woodland Garden @ the Missouri Botanical Garden
I don't know when i took this photo
At the moment I am contemplating
so, pretending i am right there, right now
is a lovely thought

Happy Friday!

Green All Around

Last Class this term tomorrow morning.

The Ice Cream Truck parks in our lot
and every student gets to choose a free treat.

My puppy has finally switched from puppy to adult chow.
She'll always be my puppy, though.

love & love,

"You say goodbye - i say hello . . . "

Yesterday i stood shoulder to shoulder 
with other educators
to support one of our own
as she said good-bye to her sweet heart
of 59 years.

He was also a terrific person
and friend of ours

Golly, he had friends and family
from everywhere
they all came
they weren't sad
they shared

it was easy to feel the love
when i left

it didn't feel as if we "lost" someone 
it feels
as if our family
our community
became stronger
as if we grew in goodness

Hologram for the King

I was not prepared for the tapestry of wonder this film delivered.
I was asked to choose a film
keeping in mind the person I would be going with
I mentioned the "Tom Hanks" film.
Can't go wrong with a "Tom Hanks" film.

This one was so much more
a super treat.
I'd read a bunch of reviews, 
where people slammed the film
while admitting Tom Hanks makes everything better,

This feature film was filled with marvelous sights,
honest ideas,
opportunity to consider cultural diversity

In this case you don't have to depend on me
because i found a good review
I agree with the reviewer

i say,

ps - remember to click to see the review . . .
