Fourth of July and more

This past weekend was filled with lots of sitting on my chair at the beach with a book reading, a few crossword puzzles, some sun-tanning, laughing as students studied for finals, and fireworks on the lake.

Nothing much eventful happened. A friend came to visit and we trampled through the preserve I'm working at which was probably the highlight of the weekend. Students, who are now packing to leave and leaving, studied and took their finals. A few goodbyes were said... and life went on.

Being at AuSable has taught me that people come and go. Its good to get to know them because for 5 weeks its all you have. You may even see them again one day... maybe not... but maybe.

Nothing is certian in this life, and there's nothing you can do about it besides try to enjoy every day you have. Life is full of surprises good and bad.

Every one and every thing impacts you - you just might not know it or recognize it until its too late.
