Out of the Woods

raindrops look like diamonds on plant leaves
Raindrops on Jewelweed by Protopian Pickle Jar (2015).

Into the woods,
Then out of the woods,
And home before dark!

– Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods

I can hardly believe that I’ve just finished up two plus weeks of Teva environmental education programming: First, a week with 5th graders in the North Georgia hills; 2nd, a week with other 5th graders in the Litchfield hills of northwest Connecticut; and finally, a Sunday afternoon of early childhood papermaking in Brooklyn.

It’s also hard to grok that it’s been over a month since I left Kansas City on this grand springtime adventure. Heading back to the heartland tomorrow morning, where there will be plenty of time to unpack these experiences (and corporeal suitcases) both on the blog and in real life.
