This is one of the poems we wrote this morning. What do you think?
Sunshine warms wet flowing blades of grass
Ghostly white flowers bloom
Birds sing Halleluiah, bees whisper
Haze falls on a nuclear wasteland
Stems are cut, draped on stones
Bruised beaks squawk, insects fall
Here are some things to think about if you are interested in doing a local history project but don’t have any ideas, yet.
- Research a downtown building or location, Here is a good example from 5 pound apparel of building research turned into an informative poster.
- Research an event in Ozark’s or Springfield’s history and turn it into a radio story, documentary, or something else (Wild Bill Hickock’s shootout, anti-African American violence in early 20th century)
- Research the impact of national and world on Springfield (World Wars, Great Depression, 1918 Flu Pandemic)
- Pick a topic that interests you and explore its role in Springfield(history of baseball in Springfield, Springfield music scenes, the labor movement in Springfield, immigrant populations in Springfield, women’s rights in Springfield)
- Do a profile of a famous, infamous, or interesting Springfieldian(s) (Springfield’s first doctors, Bob Barker in Springfield, Springfield’s early radio and TV stars)

But what does it mean when political action comes from a position of no beliefs or values but only for the Lulz.
For Wednesday read to “Saint-Malo” page 95. We will probably go to a coffee shop for our discussion group.
