Out of the woods

Well, we are back from our vacation. I will report on our adventures by means of a list of words and phrases: near death experience; backroads; family; reconnecting with an old classmate; worshipping at Grace Lutheran, a great church in Tulsa; BBQ galore; canoes; rafts; beautiful scenery; sublime scenery; relatives; getting soaked; poison ivy; Broken Arrow; hasty bake factory; Mexican cuisine; lots of driving; “The Children of Hurin”; quality and quantity time with my wife.

I have never, as an English teacher, assigned my students to write about their summer vacations, but if you want to offer a similar collage of words, you are welcome to.

    You can actually make a “collage of words” by going to http://wordle.net/create.
    It takes your words and makes a collage of them, enlarging those words that happen with the most frequency. So by writing about your summer vacation, you can then memorialize it with a collage.
