Hidden Treasures: The Bridges of Asia

Joel Carillet's picture

"Something there is that doesn't love a wall," wrote Robert Frost in his well known poem "Mending Wall." And indeed there are many walls, past and present, in places like Berlin and Bethlehem, that are difficult to love.

But this is not so with bridges.  Bridges connect instead of divide.  They invite us to venture to the other side and see what is there, and allow others to visit us where we are too.  They have style, architecturally at least, and they carry life.  And so to borrow from Frost's line of thinking: something there is that loves a bridge!

Through the Eyes of an Educator: The Beginning

by Stacey Ebert / Sep 08, 2017 /

For decades, I had a first day of school. Elementary, middle, high school, university, and then teaching high school; late August meant a ‘close’ of camp, early September meant the ‘unofficial end’ to beach season, and then it was back to school. That new outfit, that new backpack, and the jitters of what’s to come all became rolled into one - a first day of school. Amidst all of the crazy and looking forward to the unknown, there was a new beginning. Does everyone have this? How does this ‘beginning’ foster itself for those who don’t have that ‘back to school’ scenario?
