National Tropical Botanical Gardens
On Sunday I leave for Kaua'i to be part of the National Tropical Botanical Gardens Environmental Journalism Fellowship. It's amazing how many things I'm going to need for a week- the top of the list being mosquito repellant and after bite, for the bugs that didn't know they weren't supposed to dine on my blood. When my kids used to go away to camp they always worried that they weren't going to make friends. I used to tell them to be themselves, play nicely and share their goodies with the children in their cabin. Remembering my words of advice, my adult kids gave me the same instructions, but added in "Don't worry, Mom, at least you're not stuck there all summer like we were at camp."
