This is just a brief update to let you all know that as of Monday at 10:00 am, I have started training as an AmeriCorps volunteer. Twenty-five or so other people are undergoing the training with me, and I think we all know each other’s name now. I think I’ll wait and give an overall summary when I finish up, but I wanted to note that it’s going much better than I feared. There seems to be no upper age limit, and quite a number of people are older than me. We have enough in common that I’m finding plenty to talk with people about. Everybody is, at the very least, extremely interesting.
Now I’m off, but here are some pictures I took on a short walk we took at Catherine Creek. Some of these are my first attempts at using the graduated neutral density (GND) filter Ian got me for Christmas — they are a bit dark, but the detail came out came remarkably well. Yay!
