Wylie House talk Thursday

No time for exploring this past week, which I spent working on a slide show about Southern Indiana's natural legacy for a presentation Thursday evening at the Wylie House Museum.

Sponsored by Wylie and IU Press, the hourlong conversation about my Natural Bloomington journey will begin at 7 p.m. at the home of IU's first president on the corner of Second and Lincoln Streets in Bloomington.

I'll talk for 20 minutes about a lifelong odyssey with photography and nature and the latest chapter -- A Guide to Natural Areas of Southern Indiana;  present a 20-minute slide show on the land itself; and answer questions for 20 minutes. More of less.

The slide show -- my first -- focuses on what I learned about the natural forces that forged the landscape -- rock, ice and water -- as well as the land- and lifeforms that now thrive upon it. It features about 200 images, with no repeats. Whew!

I hope you can join me on Thursday. I will have guidebooks -- think Christmas gifts -- to sell.

In the meantime, I have a break from teaching and grading this week. My only professional obligations are 15-minute sit downs with each of my students to talk about their progress.

Given the timing, I am planning a couple fall color excursions in between. Gary Morrison and I are traveling north to Shades and Turkey Run State Parks on Friday, for sure. If all goes well, I may hit some nature preserves around Terre Haute on Wednesday.
