How does the geography of place affect who I am?

Imagining a New Channel



It seems just like last week that the river was swollen with the

moisture from the melting snow. I could sit on the river's edge and

watch the water flow right toward me---an eerie feeling. As the river

turned the corner it would take a small portion of the bank with it on

its journey to the sea. Each time I arrived at the river, I… Continue

In All Quiet on the Western Front it was stated that "to no man does the earth mean more" and that may be hard for some of us to understand. But it means that an infantry soldier in the trenches and his whole life is defined by the dirt, med, water, and the elements. My father spent several months in the foxholes of Korea in 1952 and he talked a bit about it. I was in the Marines in 1990-94 and was deployed to the desert and spent a few nights dug into the desert sands of Saudi Arabia.  It is hard for me to say that the earth and land mean less to the military man, unless he/she spends his time in a barracks and not getting out and digging in. I think Barry Lopez would have a few things to say about the geography of the infantry Marine.

I ahve been remiss in completing my first LCP up to this point. I have a lot of ideas swirling around in my head, have looked at a few models, and understand the inquiry method....... for me. I want my LCPs to be relevant to what I am doing and I want them to be something I can use in my teaching now as a cyber teacher. I could do any number of LCPs on 100s of histprical themes (related to our class study) but I want to be sure that what I do is meaningful. I am getting close to the point of getting going on my first LCP, but I wanted to kind of let you know that I am not being lazy or procratinating, rather, I just needed to let the LCP rubric and my ideas "stew" for a bit before I put them together.

Barry Lopez (Arctic Dreams) has written a wonderful essay on the topic of having a sense of place. I need to find it and re-read it. If I remember he kind of makes the case for geography having an effect on our thoughts and our thinking having an affect on the way we interpret a particular landscape. (landscape affects mindscape).
