...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 love photographing these guys. They appeared on the oaks by my driveway a few days ago, and today, I spotted them for the first time by the walkway leading to the upper campus at FRC. They arae getting bigger and more abundant, and I'm continually trying to take the ultimate photo of them.
This shot shows the population density and includes a hint of falls colors.
Undoubtedly a conference on parenting going on here. I wonder if it's as complicated for them as it is for us.
