I remember being fascinated by the ever-changing symmetrical patterns I saw through that magical eyepiece. Later on, when I figured out how the configuration of mirrors created those patterns, I was no less impressed by the ingenuity of mind that could conceive such a wonderful contraption and then construct it out of tin, cardboard, a bit of plastic, and a few pieces of colorful glass. If anything, my admiration for the kaleidoscope was enhanced by understanding how it worked.</div></div></div>

Now, Oregon weather is known for its changeability, but this was one for the record books! As I ventured out for lunch at the Trail Room–bracing for anything the skies might send my way–my thoughts turned to the fluctuations in the global economy and to the myriad creative ways in which Lewis & Clark is responding to the world economic crisis. Although we cannot know what is coming next, I take comfort in my conviction that our community has the resources to weather the storm.<br/></div></div></div>
