Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include:
1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes;
2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.
InSPIREd Sunday - Saint Michael the Archangel Orthodox

A bit late in the day to be posting for InSPIREd Sunday, but worth the wait, I hope. For the past several months I've been trying to get photos of all the historical churches in Louisville. Have had Saint Michael the Archangel Orthodox on the list for some time. Waiting for a day when the sky is bright so it would be a good background for the church dome and blue spires. This church was established in the 1930s and is described as Pan-Orthodox Christian, serving many cultures and ethnic groups from Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, and America who live in Louisville. Your can see the different influences in the architecture, especially the domed roof, brightly colored spires, and iconography. Hopefully, I can get back to the church in the future to take some photos inside.
