Lessons in listening: The importance of play

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Laura Wilkinson



Kristie.jpg

Back in the springtime, I was chatting with a custodial supervisor up on the hill. I had just given a mindful eating workshop at the yearly custodial fair and was all hyped up on adrenaline and caffeine post-presentation. This is the perfect hormonal cocktail for me to start scheming up big ideas and planning future endeavors. That particular day, I offered up my services to plan, organize, implement, present and contribute monetarily to a series of Lunch and Learns for the entire custodial staff.

Its rusting blades.

Its ladder tower. All of it,

The outside story: The boxelder tree can also be a bug

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Joe Rankin

Boxelder, also known as ash-leaved maple, can be a fairly big tree: it can grow 50 to 75 feet tall and more than two feet in diameter, though it often has multiple trunks.
