Quote of the Week. . .
Food for Thought. . .
The window panes of the classic yellow bus that we rode to school each day were divided in two.  The lower section remained locked in place.  The upper section slid up and down to allow for airflow on warmer days and, perhaps, a bit of hand-waving celebration on the last day of school or to greet friends walking by.  The lower pane framed much of the world that I saw each day on the way to school.  Introverted and quiet, I liked to watch the fields and forests flow by, see the deer bound across the recently harvested grain fields, follow the sunlight as it danced across the bay of Fishhook Lake, and spy classmates as they walked into school as we pulled up to disembark. The pane functioned as a portable movie screen for the world that passed by on a daily basis. To read more, click here. . .
