Traveling-Day 4

  1. Best book–so many, but I still have an incredibly strong emotional reaction when I think about reading A Prayer for Owen Meaney by John Irving. I had to read it in AP English over the summer, which I thought was so mean in high school. Its a big book, and I remember thinking that NO ONE would finish it. And then I began to read it. I do not have a great memory for books, but this one was adventure, tears, love, heartbreak, challenges all in one amazing character. Maybe it was the time of my life, and I have not gone back to re-read (I never do), but it still is one of the most visceral memories I have.

    1. Angela, have you seen the movie “Simon Birch” that was loosley based on the book? I haven’t read the book, but the movie touched me deeply.

  2. Hardest thing I’ve ever done was leaving my mom in intensive care because I needed to come back to Michigan to my family. My brother and I passed in the air, so dad had support. Roots are important. Don’t take no for an answer! ❤

  3. My favorite book- The Glass Castle. I made connections to so many students and their families as I read it each time (3times). It makes me understand, be more compassionate, and thoughtful of what others have/don’t have. I am loving your blog!

  4. My favorite book is Kon-Tiki by Thor Heyerdahl. A group of scientists build a balsa raft . Then spend 101 day journey from South America to Polynesian Islands. They did this that is was a possible way of migration. I guess I liked it because it was like a Huckleberry Finn adventure. I read it in 4th grade. The book was like 400 pages and I had to do a book report on it. My teacher didn’t believe me that I read the whole book. But, I did. I would read for hours everyday. I guess that is why I read nothing but non-fiction adventure today.
    You Cheri are creating your own non-fiction adventure. Continue on and let the adventure never end. Be safe.

  5. Best book…The Kite Runner. All the best universal truths of life are wrapped up in it. Hardest thing I ever did…handing my #1 son over for heart surgery at 5 days old when everything in me told me to take him and run.
