Thoughts for the new school year...

Geography is how we "understand" our location. There are 2 ways to look at it: 1) absolute - which is precisely where you are, including GPS latitude and longitude, and 2) relative - yep, what it's like or next to, just like your family. How are you like your family members? How does that describe you? Think about Utah...we could say it's bigger than Missouri and smaller than New Mexico. But does that tell you everything you need to know? You might be older than your sister but younger than your brother. We could say it's east of Nevada and west of Colorado...you might live between your two best friends. How do those things define who we are?
