As a chaperone to 22 lovely young students in Costa Rica, I find myself with a lot of free time to do things that I don’t care to do.  In retrospect, I should have brought my grading to do, as it would have given me something of worth to do instead of wandering around aimlessly trying to find things to do.  Maybe I’ll just read for pleasure for the next 45 minutes before I need to go back to the school.  Below are my thoughts as I was walking around without direction or destination.

It’s windy,

I’m cool.

I’m walking


with nowhere

to go.

different sights,

different sounds,

are not the same

when you’re alone.
