For many reasons, I’ve been thinking of my travels this past year. When news came that Maria Von Trapp, immortalized in The Sound of Music, had passed away, I immediately started looking through my photos from New England this fall. When I briefly visited the Von Trapp Lodge in Stowe, Vermont I saw some of the most beautiful foliage of my visit. I completely understand why a family would want to live in that location– the views are simply stunning.
Thank you Brenda.
If you want to be energized, watch this performance of Sojourner Truth’s famous “Ain’t I a Woman” speech from 1851, by Alfre Woodard. I take great pride in the fact that I teach at a school founded in the same year, founded to provide women an education because The University of Missouri didn’t allow them to study there. Indeed to teach at a place created for all the ‘Ain’t I a Women’ is something very, very good.
