Daily Note and Poetry

Every day, a photograph, a poem. On the daily walk in front of the bank next door to Cole Park, I saw a bit of movement– probably an ear twitching as the little aphid clouds pass by the napping deer, which we had not seen until then. Do you see them? Do you see three? And so… a poem.

Mule Deer- Look- Three!

Count them: one, two, three
Napping afternoons in the shade
Barely seen, unless an ear flicks a gnat
Passersby then call: Look at that!

Daily Create WriteOut

Earlier in the day, my writing prompt from the Daily Create

— #clmooc #DS106  @ds106dc   #tdc3926  #writeout  — invited us to ask a question of a scientist represented on Karen Romano Young’s website I Was A Kid, which shares about scientists, their careers, and their childhoods so kids can see what is possible for their future careers.

I chose @PolarPrem — Prem Gill — who was part of #frozenplanet2 and also strives towards making the world better by encouraging those who are under-represented and by studying Climate Change.

I asked and tweeted : How best can the average person support the research to help us through climate change?

I discovered Prem Gill was a NatGeo Explorer, which you can read about here.

See his website

And watch this interview about how his work with satellite technology will help all of nature, and the seals of Antarctica as our climate changes. Thank you, Prem Gill for your work on climate change and for helping others.

Take a look at one of the scientists here — I Was A Kid Baseball Cards — and ask a question. Do a bit of research and see if your scientist has a blog or website to learn more about the career the person has chosen and consider your own choice to be a world changer through science, technology, engineering, art, or mathematics.


My CLmooc friends doodle every day.  Besides the WriteOut 2022 doodle above, I also continued my illustrations of mushrooms [Groovy and Watercolor]– this time as vintage designs with the same lifted paper background as before. I think these are my favorite so far– although the shapes are from real mushrooms, the color is my choice– close, but not exact.
