...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.
I'm burning the midnight oil again, several hours before midnight. But, I had to keep striving for my one-a-day goal. The above pink radish and the below Filaree were found on my Friday, February 13th trip to Chico. Tomorrow, I hope to start posting photos from the recent Friday the 27th trip to the same places and say a little more about the incredible hail storm we experienced in the vicinity of the Cherokee turnoff.
Consider checking out Plumas County's Bloom Blog. The slide show on the opening page begins with my photo of a bee hovering by a Lupine taken on Table Mountain. One of my favorite photos, and it was nice to see it posted again to launch a new season of the Bloom Blog.
