...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 set could almost be titled "A Reverence for Wood" after a little volume on my Americana shelf. Our descent of Grizzly Peak was interrupted by our fascination with the dead tree that caught our attention on the way up. This is a photo sampler, ending with a flower that I still have not identified.
More text later.
