    What a well written and intriguing post. I especially appreciate the way Pine ends by highlighting how her experience reminds her to ” keep fresh… the sense of being an interpreter” for her students and also helping them “learn to enjoy the experience” of being lost – at least for awhile. Great reminder for us all.
