Nearly a month has gone by without any new posts, despite my recent statements about blogging in earnest. I'm finding that teaching writing classes not only involves lots of time grading papers but also focuses my interest on writing. I'm actually writing a lot in various journals and notebooks, but not focusing in the short run on material I want to post here. We'll see what develops. Let's just say, my cessation of blogging is not due to deterioration of my health. I might be back soon. It probably depends on how spring unfolds - wildflowers, lizards, interesting insects, etc., usually fire me up and prompt me to keep my camera batteries charged.
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.
If you're new to this blog, scroll back to see what this spider ate yesterday. The Red Clover doesn't stay in bloom for very long, but the nearby daisies are just getting started and they tend to stay in bloom longer. So, I expect this Goldenrod Crab Spider will relocate sometime in the next week or so. Last night, at sundown, she still had her mandibles in a butterfly, but now she's draining a bee. I wonder what tomorrow will bring. No way will I be mowing the lawn any time soon.
As if this weren't enough excitement, today is my younger sister's birthday, and, I've reached 29 posts in 29 days for the month of May. This self-imposed goal keeps me writing and adventuring.
