Greetings! I know many of our R2s have headed off to their rural adventure! That’s why I wanted to share the timely tweet-thread above. It’s important that we keep our mind and heart receptive to new learning experiences and opportunities that may open doors for us. Sometimes we think we have it all planned and then we intersect with a place, a person, an event, or a thought that completely shifts our paradigm and exposes us to the unknown while simultaneously awakening our curiosity.
This is also an opportunity to unpack that suitcase of knowledge. We never quite know what we have until someone or some circumstance requires us to pull from within and share it.
Enough of my philosophical ramblings :). Please complete your Rural Academic Travel Log while you are away. Instructions may be found here.
If you need anything, just hollah!
