52º ~ stormy days, a bit worn down by the sound of tornado sirens, hail, lightning strikes, and drenching rains
On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, PTC celebrated National Poetry Week by hosting a Chalk the Walk event. I confess, Dear Reader, that I stole this idea from my good friends Hope Coulter and Rebecca Resinki, who teach at Hendrix College. Back in March, Hope mentioned the activity to me and I knew right away that I wanted to do it at PTC. The whole concept is brilliant: have students use sidewalk chalk to write lines of poetry around a central location on campus. Many, many thanks to Hope and Rebecca for this!
Both faculty and students rallied around our event, and we were lucky to fit it in between storms. However, Tuesday night's rain washed the slate clean for Wednesday students. Not a bad thing, but it will be fun to see what two day's worth looks like in the future.
Here are some pictures of the event.
All thanks to my colleagues and the students at PTC for making my dream a reality!
