hoyels or readmgs that waste my ume My cunosmes important to be dispassionate and quiet Finding rationality in life is only one side of the picture Ram Dass notes Unjudging awareness not only frees us and others from the consequences of our reactivity We can stop and face what s right before us We can look at what is 74 Dass urges the reader to let go of the need for rational thoughts he sees thoughts as clouds in the sky that can be free owing and seen without restraint Nicole s insight as a writer reader and person can be improved in this way She often confines herself to the labels that Dass notes are limiting and defensive in nature 72 Throughout this semester she has worked on an individual basis and with her classmates to change the way she sees herself and the world in which she lives This class has helped her reevaluate her life and her environment through activities ranging from journaling to exploring Waller Creek As seen below Waller Creek brought the playful curious side of Nicole back out into the world which has often been removed from her school personality since late childhood Feeling free to get her feet wet and walk around the creek helped Nicole to discover a new sense of peace and enjoyment in natural surroundings Dass might say that Nicole was more free in her environment to detach herself from labels and the tensions that remove her from her sense of place Dass s mnstpmylantadvmefuerulz mthls areanfselmwareness energas fmm his meuphm nmnugncs bang leaves uwmg dawn a sueam We aren t uur unnugncs anyrmmthanwe are the leaves We ranmmmnqulztquoth2

and freedom of ideas which are integrated in the course but some individuals found themselves feeling somewhat frustrated and uneasy at times During the course evaluations the classmates agreed that the course itself seems daunting at first but with the charm and atmosphere presented by the professor it becomes challenging and enjoyable On an individual basis Nicole is not used to the structure of this course but it helps her to learn to be less focused on the end of the semester She has been forced to think about each day as it relates to the next rather than looking toward some scary exam or ultimate paper Going back to first person I had to estimate my grade today I would probably have a midlevel B As I noted in the final goals update I will be meeting with Cameron or going to the park alone this week and I will hopefully make up the gaps in my grades for the Japanese gardens Given those future points and the prospective portfolio I hope that I will at least be making a B by the end of the semester I will say that I wish there had been a little more focus on modern interpretations of nature as I felt I really enjoyed Gary Snyder s writings but they were sort of crammed into the last journal Perhaps this is my own recurring interest of Kerouac s Frenchness and his masculine Beat friends but I checked out three Snyder books and a few other related titles today just to keep going with the nature writings theme I really enjoyed following you and the class around campus to see plants buildings and signs of life and I think pretty much everyone in class did too I don t know if nature is you main focus for the freshmen but I particularly liked that theme throughout the semester and I hope that you continue to teach awareness to other blind busy stressed out college seniors like myself Thanks for a great semester from Geoffrey and I
