Many of the posts in this category will focus on my own life experiences and observations.
Many will directly relate to things I do and see in my Grant Park neighborhood. I want to show the value of regular contact with nature and also of getting to know a place at a deep, personal level. Sometimes these kinds of posts will be very short, consisting of a photo and a sentence or two, just a simple observation of a moment in time.
Northern Minnesota, that beautiful rugged land of Sigurd Olson, also will appear with some frequency. It has been my home away from home since the summer of 1963. So I know it very, very well. And yet! I still cannot know it as well as my own neighborhood.
Similar posts of my experiences in other places will also appear in this category.
When these personal posts of mine also describe scientific understanding of their topic, I will cross-list them in the Nature category.
Not every personal post of mine will emphasize a place. Some, for example, will focus on thoughts and observations. They’ll still be found here, in the Exploring category.
