This lamp post at Whitworth reminded me of Narnia.

I met with my graduate advisor at Whitworth College to discuss my curriculum project at the MAC. During the course of our discussion, we generated a few ideas about taking the teachings of the various tribes and turning them into "Enduring Understandings" within a cohesive academic unit. We essentially talked about creating a cutting edge curriculum from the most respected traditions of the local tribes. I'm excited by this project, and quite honored by the support I've received by Whitworth, the MAC, and the Native community.

As we left the meeting, Dakota and I witnessed the most amazing snowfall. Giant flakes of snow began falling in such great quantities it seemed the very air turned white, and yet the sun was still shining in scattered areas. It really presented a remarkable effect. There was a lamp post on campus that reminded me of Narnia in the snow. Dakota and I saw it at the same time and made the same comment.
