Tracy Gallup went to some trouble to set up a trip for all of us--every class in Summers-Knoll--to hike a mile-long trail up in Livingston County called the Oaken Transformation. In this little stretch of forest, farm, and grassland, sculptures and beautifully rendered poems were scattered along the footpath. We went up with Jason's class on Thursday, May 9, armed with picnic lunches and commonplace books. We read a few of the poems aloud. I gave a few prompts, but not too many; the kids found their own muses. They drew, wrote, and recited. The day was lovely. Danny took some fine photographs on the trail. Here are a few of them.
