Spanish moss was dripping from this live oak tree. Such an unusual plant! Although it may resemble a moss and have moss as part of its name, it is apparently from the bromeliad family - rather curious....and seemingly contradictory, as well.

Isn't it funny how some things can be both so easily understood and as 'clear as mud' simultaneously?!? My brain is churning with new thoughts and ideas after jam-packed conference days and exhibit wanderings. Just when I absorb the concept of something new, or even re-packaged, a diversion sends me in another direction. Heidi Hayes Jacobs mentioned the oft-heard mantra, "The focus should not be on the technology tools, but the learning." and then she noted that, in fact, the focus does need to be on the technology! Study the technology so deeply that one discovers the proper use for that tool as it relates to learning! So, I 'get' it and then I don't...the reflective state will continue to churn these things about! :) near Lake Poinsett, FL
