Field Trip to Vermont

This week, a group of the museum staff went on a field trip to the Montshire Museum in Norwich, Vermont. Although I've lived in Rhode Island for 7 years, Vermont will always be my home. It took me until this spring to finally hand over my VT license to officially (and quite reluctantly) become a resident of the Ocean State. I've only realized since I moved to Rhode Island how my home state is so much a part of who I am.

Just as I think of Vermont as home, I'll always think of the Montshire as "my museum." I remember going on a field trip there in first grade. I was so excited the night before that I woke up in the middle of the night and got dressed for the day, thinking that if I got dressed it would come sooner. When I woke up in the morning, I had my pj's back on. (Thanks, Mom.)

Many of my favorite parts of the Museum were still there (bubbles, leaf cutter ants, live bees) and were just as engaging as they were when I was six. And this time I made a point to finally get outside to check out their trails and outdoor exhibits.

It felt so good. Quiet trails, VT smells, and inspiration from the natural world.

Trees are turning out to be kind of a thing for me. Here's a sneak peek at a series I have in the works. This one is called "Summer."

More to come...
