Here's a blog post I wrote this week on nature journaling.  I think it aligns with some thinking this week in the RRC community around nature stories.  Would love to know what you all think!

The icy days at home this week put me a mood to write, ponder and get jazzed about new ideas and connections. I had the opportunity one day to email a bit with another Charlotte mama and blogger who just got to visit Cedarsong Nature School in Washington state, the quintessential Forest ...

Lacy, the images of your daybook reminded me to revisit Lynda Barry's /Syllabus/ - I feel like immersing myself in that over the holidays started me percolating on the idea of incorporating more visual elements into my own daybook, but I didn't quite get to the idea of how significant color can be until I saw your watercolor and read your words - thank you for that.

Here's my recent blog post on nature journaling in which I talk about my relationship with a lovely book that you all should get, Drawn to Nature by Clare Walker Leslie.

Make Cycle 2: Creative Quote Sharing  - 
 
Enjoying checking out what's been happening here on the mooc. Inspired to make a quote first thing!

So this is in honor of the winter solstice- the entrance to a time of year when shadows are especially open for exploration and contemplation! Happy Solstice, writers!

This was my wobbling during +Jessica Schley s demo as I thought with +Monica Collazo +Erin Pfahler and +Maggie Winkowski about the Donald Murray quote about writing not existing until it is read. I am thinking about how kids like Mauricio push me to think about writing and meaning differently. for at least six months he did not articulate meaning behind his writing but he clearly inhabited the body and ways of being of a writer through joining the community writing in his day book etc...

Clinkity, clink, clink: Extended Inquiry into Marble Mazes

Check out this mini-documentary created by +Robert Stanley about our recent Intersection public event, Cardburg!  It's really cool that we have some of our local maker peeps here sharing their ideas!

Exciting to have folks from Montana in the room with us in our year 2 launch in Charlotte!  Thinking lots about all of your smart ideas and wonderings related to the Making STEAM project and particularly ideas about curation, response and g+ community.  Another iteration is surfacing here this week as we leverage the community ideas!  Thanks +Steve Fulton  +Gábor Zsuppán for bringing this to our larger crew :)

None of the pretty ones would work!  Wahhh!  This is my word cloud for the statement on Translingualism... The basic message of which I took to be: got off the "Standard English" boat already.  It is sitting at the bottom of the ocean.

This is the poem I wrote at the end of +Randy Kurstin s demo when he put the visual up. I could nAme this as wobble as well because I did not expect to find that moment as a writer within all the punctuAtion thinking.

This is my connecting moment. I was listening intently and responding in my day book this morning to the tail end of the convo after +Carla Davis a demo. I was really getting what +Randy Kurstin +Melvin Hobbs ( code name Natasha) and +Erin Pfahler said. Their ideas were helping me figure out my own.
