Welcome to my lists!
I have discovered that I'm addicted to blogging. My position as a language arts teacher to middle schoolers enables my addiction. Is there a 12-step program for this? I hope not.
In my spare time, I'm a wife and the social director for my social set.

  • Choose a spot in the gardens which represents an abstract noun such as "home," "peace," or "trouble." Sketch the spot.
  • Find a spot in the gardens which is well-traveled. As people walk by, write down what you hear them saying.
  • Find a spot in the gardens which is less-traveled. Close your eyes and breathe deeply while counting to 100... slowly. Open your eyes and write about what you heard, smelled, or thought as you were experiencing the gardens.
