Archive of Mind

Roll away your stone I will roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find

Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal...


{Roll Away Your Stone -- Mumford and Sons}


The Peabody Essex Museum just wrapped up the most amazing immersive and interactive exhibit. "Archive of Mind" was designed by the artist Kimsooja and asks the viewer to become involved in the piece.

You're given a piece of clay and roll it into a ball. It is meant to be a meditative experience as the clay moves between your palms. Then, once you've finished your sphere, you push it up against the others, creating one piece larger than yourself.

Set in a dark room, the earth tones popped against the black surroundings. A sea of spheres, all created by museum patrons. It truly was a different experience and a beautiful sight.

Body Worlds

I have always been fascinated by the human body and science. I saw the Body Worlds exhibit when I was in high school and was excited it was back in Boston. Granted, this time I didn't have almost-doctor Avi as my personal docent but, it was still an amazing experience.
When you think about it, our bodies are amazing. It was neat to see a close up of a femur and see where my bone went on strike over the spring and summer. I also loved seeing all the bran parts I teach my third graders about in our mindfulness curriculum.

Fly Eagles Fly!

Fly, Eagles Fly!
On the road to victory! 
Fight, Eagles fight!
Score a touchdown 1, 2, 3! 
Hit 'em low!
Hit 'em high!
And watch our Eagles fly!
Fly, Eagles Fly!
On the road to victory!
E-A-G-L-E-S!
Eagles!

{Eagles Victory Song}

In my nearly 16ish years as an Eagles fan, I had never been to a game (or any NFL game)! I finally got to an Eagles game and it was an epic experience.

Last regular game of the season. Playoffs on the line.
Eagles v Giants at the Metlife Stadium.

It was of course, pouring rain...because I can't do anything in dry conditions, but it just added to the experience. Actually, our seats were under the bit of overhang so we weren't sopping wet!

It was a slowish start for both the offense and defense but once the Eagles got moving they plowed through the Giants. There were some amazing plays, an epic turnover, and the Eagles D kept sacking the Giant's GB.

By the 3rd quarter, the Eagles had a commanding lead and the Giants weren't getting much past 3rd down each possession. By the 4th quarter the stadium was 90% Eagles fans and the Eagles punched their ticket to the playoffs!

Games in real life are pretty fun, once I got used to not having the line of scrimmage and first down lines on the field it was smooth sailing! Also, it seems to move much faster without commercials!

Fly Eagles Fly!!
