My Starved Rock Adventure- April 2018

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

             My geology class and I went to Starved Rock National Park in mid April. We made a few different stops within the range of the Starved Rock area. We went from Buffalo Park, to a few stops within the Quarry, and lastly Mathessien Park. I took over 100 photos, so I uploaded the best of the best pictures of my adventure. 10 hours of hiking in the wet, cold, and rainy park taught me a lot about myself; stuff that I never even knew about myself. For example, I’m very clumsy and afraid of heights. However, I learned to have more confidence within my stride. I now know about myself is that no matter how I fall, I always get back up and keep going on.

I now plan on going for hikes every couple we

4 Spring Zen Haikus

The cold cycle ends.

The spring lotus flourishes.

New spring blooms within.


Goodbye icicles. 

Sharp ice dissolves from the sun.

Lily petals bloom.


Here comes the new sun.

Smiles grow as the new sun glows.

The new sun is zen.


What’s the song of spring?

Growth, change, flourish, and rebirth. 

This makes my heart glow.

Wish

7c594144bbbad4ea191901a620aabe5a

Count to three, make a wish, and then say;

“I wish, I wish I was a fish!”

Or maybe express this thought for today;

“Maybe someday I can grant someone’s wish.”

Just know that this statement is the truth;

“I can be anything and anyone I want to be.”

To wish for good luck you don’t need to have a clover, a rabbit’s foot, or a tooth.

It’s as simple as; “Jumping for joy, dancing with glee, setting my worries free!”

Do you want to know something very special about yourself?

You are the creator of your own destiny, the author of your own book!

It would be a curse to be like everybody else.

You could be a dancer, actor, writer, salesman, business owner, manager, singer, artist, or cook!

Do you see that dandelion there?

See it as a free wish and you’ll set yourself free!

Everyone deserves to have a wish, it’s only fair.

See it as a weed and you’ll be flooded with pessimism, hatred, and greed.

Don’t believe that the world is cold and doesn’t care.

Agree to open your heart and share.

Everyone and everything you need will be there.
