The structure of DNA is a double helix, double stranded like a twisted ladder. DNA carries information about who we are, where we are from, and what our health may look like in the future.

    Autumn Leaves: Poetry, Photography, and Song

    I loved the song ‘Autumn Leaves’ from the first time I heard it. I love the energy of the song and the way I feel singing it. I have spent hours with this song, singing this song just for the sheer pleasure like I did as a teenager.

    At Thanksgiving this year it rained most of the weekend, but there were occasional short breaks. Dad and I went out on Sunday afternoon to take pictures along the Britt road (otherwise known as Riverside Drive). On Monday, driving home I continued to pull over and take pictures. Since the sky was so grey it made the colours pop.

    Thanksgiving

    sun lights red maple
    glowing warmth
    and memory
    summer afternoons gone
     
    crisp breath talks
    to fallen leaves
    collected as treasures
    upon our table
     
    thank-you trees
    and sun and time
     
    children like sunflowers
    energy spirals
    and mindfulness
    winter mornings near
     
    bright appetites linger
    family’s feasting
    savoured as love
    captured in our portrait
     
    thank-you home
    and food and this.

    It’s my second year teaching high school. I work in a big school with about two thousand students. In Grade 11 Advanced English we study Macbeth.

    “Miss, do we really have to write another essay?” a lanky boy in the front row asks.
