Book Reports vs Field Notes

Some give book reports While others write field notes
Regurgitating facts

When others are out there living that

Getting their hands dirty

They get into the thick of things

Going after that big gold ring

Experimenting like a mad scientist

To see what works

Frankenstein is in them

And lightening has struck


When pushing their luck

Leaving those around them all star-struck

As they go about picking up all those bucks
Inspired by my friend Dean Jackson’s quote, “There are those that write book reports and then they are those who wrote field notes.”
