hermit crab

Yesterday a marine biologst came to visit the children at the history camp. "What did the colonists eat?" she asked. "What was under those waters in the bay?"

This group of six-year-olds was transfixed by the creatures that this woman pulled out of her cooler. I'd never seen them so quiet. At one point she got them really quiet and asked them to coax the hermit crab out of its shell by inviting him with silence. He emerged! The whole experience made me think of this book about "nature deficit disorder," Last Child in the Woods.

Joyeuse Fete de la Bastille a tous!

Oh! I wonder what we all might invite out with silence.

What a beautiful image!

Hi Caroline

I enjoy reading your blog. You have a unique and refreshing appreciation of what is truly important in life, as well as good taste in music.

Jamie, thanks for the thought. I worked at a school where the headmaster started every meeting (even whole-school meetings) with a moment of silence, a Quaker tradition.)

Leila - thank you so much for the affirming comments. That made me feel good. I'll visit your blog right now.
