Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art and Environment

Ed Hessler

From Hamline University's CGEE good morning on this first friday of April 2021, April 2nd. Time is starting to fly and now 25.21 percent of the year has passed or 2208 hours. Sunrise is at 6:50 am and sunset is at 7:42 pm. Day length is 12h 51m 15s. 

Today's quote. I would see people, but this is literally a trail that nobody else was thru-hiking. Soe comng back was tough. The world out here is lot more complicated. -- Emily Ford (Minneapolis Star Tribune March 28). Ford is both the 2nd person and first women to complete the 1200 mile Ice Age Trail in winter. The numbers tell part of her story: 69 days on trail, 15-20 miles per day on average, 3 "zero days" (rest days) and 1 sled dog on loan (Diggins). She loves to walk; always has.

It is National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day. Foodimentary has the usual details. Made me think about my favorite combo: simple, plain, classic nutty peanut butter; harder is the jelly but marmalade is high on my list.

And April is National Poetry Month.

Today's poem is by Hayden Caruth.
