live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air. ― ralph waldo emerson



we went outside

on a class hike

 touched stuff

 picked up things

 fell down



 played in the water

saw some pretty little stuff

and saw some big and beautiful stuff


and tried to figure out

how to get way up there


 then we found this


think it was a message

left for us

and decided it was true

 and our adventure

was even better.


land is the secure ground of home, the sea is like life,

the outside, the unknown.

– stephen gardiner
