In January I visited Austin for a teaching conference. I arrived with laryngitis and it only got worse. You see, Austin is Allergy Central of Texas so I moved from allergen-filled North Texas to the even more allergen-filled state capitol.

I knew I wouldn’t be in any shape to explore Austin, especially since the conference began so early in the morning and ended so late in the afternoon. Few volksmarches are available at night.

I had also heard a rumor that there was a walking trail somewhere near my hotel. I don’t know that I found the official trail, but I did find a paved and well-cared-for trail that led around a small, duck-filled artificial lake.



About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
