Here’s a little bonus post just for the fun of it!
I’m a bit of a romantic at heart, and as much as I like to be productive and rush from place to place, I also appreciate the eloquent beauty of poetry. When I was young and the chill of Autumn filled the air, I’d lay in a bed of leaves under a tree in our backyard and read William Wordsworth to my heart’s content. I also loved to express myself through poetry even into my teens (nerd alert!). Now I’m too busy writing emails and lesson plans to sit and decipher gratuitous language to make out hidden meanings, although I can concoct a mean rhyme under pressure in front of my students if necessary. So every once in a while I might throw in a poetry post with related artwork when I come across something particularly intriguing.
