Born in the city

with a lack of nature experience.

My childhood years were spent at the mall and the movies.

I never went hiking, canoeing, or camping

like some kids do with their family.

My first year teaching was the year I fell in love with nature.

Ten years later brought lots of different nature experiences.

I must admit at the end of the day

the city girl remains.

I prefer a nice bed

and modern technology.
