A Childhood Memory

When I was a little girl I loved to read. Our farm had a creek that was far away from our house. There were many trees and lots of grass. It was very quiet and peaceful. The creek always had water running through it. I loved to sit there with a good book. I would sit there for hours, dreaming of the distant lands I hoped to visit one day.

I still love to read. I also love the sound of water – whether it’s a creek, the ocean, a river or a waterfall. Both of these activities are calming and peaceful.

This is one of my favorite childhood memories.


*This post is written as an example for my final teaching point in the CELTA training course. The students first had to draw a picture from their childhood, then tell their partner their story (while determining if they had anything in common). Then they worked in pairs to write a childhood memory story as a blog post. Below is the picture I drew of my childhood memory*

Wanderlust. Adventurer. Mom. Mentor. Change Agent. Crazy. Servant Leader. Citizen of the World These are all words that describe me - or have been used to describe me. There are many more but we won't get in to those. What is important to know is that at the age of 45, after having a successful career and raising a son, I decided I needed a new challenge and adventure in my life. So I joined the Peace Corps. Portions of this blog were written before this time and chronicle my life during graduate school (again, something I did in my 40s). During my service in Morocco (September 2016 - December 2018) I chronicled my daily life and all it entailed to live as an American female in another country. this is a place for me to capture random thoughts and share my life's journey
