Thanksgiving Travel – Bridges and Gold

“Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.” –E.B. White-

Traveling across the new Tapen Zee Bridge in New York

Opened wide a doorway to new adventures.  Bridges do that.  The sky was excited.  I felt it, too. Anticipation.

The sky changed with a rainbow on the side of the sun.

The heavens seemed to open.

And we crossed a golden bridge.

May your travels be safe and wondrous this holiday. Enjoy your family, large and small, near and far. Happy Thanksgiving.


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you, Marlene. I know what you mean about bridges (I feel the same way about big cities), and they do connect us. I could never drive in the city! 🦃
