Some of this stuff still applies
I'm from Maine. The good part. I consider the Appalachian Trail to be the backbone of the world. My dog silently teaches me lessons on a daily basis. I quit teaching to become a better teacher. That being said, I miss my students and value every second I had with them.
I used to think believe in the adage, "you reap what you sow." One day I went out to the garden to find a microburst had leveled 20% of my sweet corn. I'm a little more realistic these days.
I'm laid back and thoughtful, yet have no reservations speaking my mind when necessity dictates the unabashed use of words.
That's all for the moment.
