The Maiden Voyage


Here I go. I know that some people think of the "wilderness" as a scary or dark place, but when I imagine a wilderness I think of adventure. I can imagine exploring places that I have never been before or revisiting locations and finding more details. That's exactly what this feels like-the beginning of an adventure! Sure, I've used the internet for e-mails and research, but I'm just beginning to realize how world-changing this www is. . . how it is not completely developed. . .how it blows out the walls of a classroom/school and expands it to include almost anywhere on earth!
I'm not sure where this adventure will take me, but I am very excited about beginning the journey!!

  2. amc-thanks for posting a comment. I'd like to post to yours but can't find a comment link?? I found one last night, but when I went to publish it, either I goofed or the computer hiccupped. Now I can't find the comment link.

    I can't find the "posted by" line that the comment link usually follows.

  4. when i think of wilderness i think of the wilderness family. remember them? and i think of grizzly adams and jeremiah johnson. i also think of little house on the prairie but that's because her name was wilder. she was a teacher. imagine if she blogged. imagine if her students could read the good bloggers of the day.

  5. I agree with your prespecitive about wilderness. It really is. I don't know what is around the next bend. Whatever it is, I am ready for it, and I can't wait for it to happen. In some way it reminds me of life. What do you think?
