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.
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.
