I’d also meant to share a Facebook post Chris Torres made several weeks ago. He won an impressive award for journalism. I’m thrilled to find I advised him well!
It’s such a joy to keep in touch with people back in the States on Facebook.
Yesterday, Luanna Jendrey, who took the “Planning for Sustainability” course I offered in the summer of 2011, posted a picture from her recent graduation. The photo was taken with former Fulbright Dr. Pam Eddy, who you’ll recall visited me here in March.
Luanna’s kind caption made my day even more special! Kristina Neuhart took the 2011 class, too, and also offered kind words.
Congratulations to Luanna on her new Master’s degree in Higher Education!
The Only in Ireland Facebook page is a hoot. These two pics are sure to make you smile. They are relevant and true!
My friends Jonathan and Amanda are staying at my apartment in Dublin for a few days. Their flight from Dublin to Germany leaves tomorrow morning. Today, Jonathan posted this image on Facebook, to remind me of my second home.
In just three days, the sun will rise at its lowest position in the sky. In other words, the closer we get to the winter solstice (which happens on December 21), the farther south of east the sun will rise. This is true for all places in the northern hemisphere.
My balcony faces due south (although Jonathan took this picture facing southeast). So, normally, the sun rises behind the building that is pictured to the left in his photo. Near December 21, the sun peeks up between the buildings in this view.
He framed the sun for me on at this significant time of year.
