Finding the time to put aside the thoughts, planning and the busyness of our lives to reflect is beneficial and sometimes crucial for our well-being. In the city with all of its distractions, we are fortunate to have places like the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve to establish the time amongst lively wetlands. It' a refuge for wildlife and can be a refuge for us. Today we will make time to reflect on this place.
Combining quiet observation in nature along with writing and journaling can be a powerful combination. To help us along with our reflections, we will be joined by Clark County Poet Laureate Angela M. Brommel, who will provide journals and lead us with a few journaling prompts.
We will meet in the classroom to meet and greet, and talk about the morning's intentions. Afterwards, we will head outside and immerse ourselves in the sights, sounds and other sensations before writing about this wetland that borders one of the world's driest cities.
We will be provided with journals, a folder, prompts, pens, pencils and clipboards. We will meet in the classroom.
