...an unpaid sabbatical. Just call it a break. I've fallen well short of my original goals for this blog and am too busy to continue at this time. Thanks for the comments and feedback people have given me by email and other means. I will continue to find solace in nature walks, with or without camera and notebook, but I will take at least a two-month break from posting here.
I have been teaching since 1965 and have recently joined the English Department as an Associate Faculty member at Feather River College. Recently taught Nature Literature in America and am currently teaching Interpersonal Communication and Basic Reading and Writing.
This was a discovery of my early morning search for stuff living under stuff. This very large Earthworm didn't seem disturbed by my lifting up its roof. I carefully replaced it and fully expect to pay many visits before it decides to relocate. I haven't seen my first Robin of the season yet, but I'm sure this worm will be waiting.
