Weekly News

Welcome back all! Another week has come and gone, and as a result, we are days away from the Vernal Equinox. Spring has almost sprung. 😉 Enjoy the longer days, the return of color and warmth and the ever-closer presence of summer. A giant sigh just escaped the thoughts of every teacher in North America, including me.

Enough of my seasonal celebrations – on with the news.

Llama drama… giggle. 🙂

This is stunning! Finding this video couldn’t be more timely. I’m currently writing chapters where my main characters are in a cave, and the visuals in the world’s largest cave make me feel the chill of the stone under my fingers and the crunch of rock beneath my boots.

Next up, further evidence that science rocks: blue lava. Very cool!

Enjoy your evening and even more important, take a few moments to recognize another spring. If you celebrate the Persian New Year, Aid-e shoma mobarak!

  1. That blue lava is amazing and those cave pics are cool. Amazing links this week.

  2. Oh wow. That blue lava is beautiful!!! I’m excited spring is coming but I’m starting to feel that soreness in my throat and my burning eyes that tell me allergy season is here.

    I loved the llama drama vid! So funny with a ton of people unable to catch them and modern cowboys lassoing from the beds of pickups. I loved the snippet of Moose-on-the-loose drama too. Such a tiny moose baby!

    The cave was spectacular, very Journey to the Center of the Earth. Loved the music too.

    That blue was gorgeous! Thanks for the great links! 🙂

  5. The llama chase was funny.
    That cave was stunning! So much plant life. It was like an alien world.
