scene three: weeks of datin, late night conversatin. in the crib, heart racin - tryin to be cool and patient. she touched on my eyelids. the room fell silent. she walked away smilin, singing gregory issacs like - "if i don't, if i don't, if i don't". showin me that tan line and that tattoo, playin sade - "sweetest taboo". burnin candles, all my other plans got canceled...

...midnight we hook up and go at it. burn a stogger, let her know, sweetheart...i got to have it.


I have an idea for a new site/blog…

Title: Teacher Features

Idea: The site/blog will be broken down into 5 sectiions based on the ideas presented in the "NCSS Five Features of Powerful Teaching and Learning". Although the five features outlined in this document are social science specific, i believe the features can be applied and adapted to all content areas. They are as follows: Meaningful, Integrative, Value-based, Challenging, and Active. After I create statements to go along with each of the features, I am going to finally put to use the hundreds of teacher resources I have compiled over the last few years by grouping them by subject under each of the features. At least, I am going to attempt to.

More to come...


I smelll summerrr!

Ahhh : )


I think it's about time i find a faith. it's never been a priority of mine, nor an interest...but for some reason i have a desire to find a religion/spirituality i can truly connect with, believe in and turn to in times of need. I'm a strong person, but i'm wise enough now to know that there are times when even the strongest, most sane and put together people need a shoulder to cry on, a friend to lean on, or a higher power to pray to.

My ideas so far...

Unitarian Universalists
The Ethical Society
    more to come...

    Move and the way will open.  Zen Proverb

    And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.  T.S. Eliot

    Nothing is more real than nothing. Samuel Beckett

    And if there is not any such thing as a long time, nor the rest of your lives, nor from now on, but there is only now, why then now is the thing to praise and I am very happy with it.  Ernest Hemingway

    In singing and dancing is the voice of the law.  Hakuin

    The sun shines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.  John Muir 

    If you are in the future, then ego seems to be very substantial. If you are in the present the ego is a mirage, it starts disappearing.  Osho

    The two exist because of the One, but hold not even to this One.  Hsin-hsin ming

    The reverse side also has a reverse side.  Japanese Proverb

    Every situation, every moment is of infinite worth for it is representative of a whole eternity.  John Wolfgang von Goethe



    The Truth is perfect like the vastness of space, With nothing wanting, nothing superfluous.  Hsin-hsin ming

    Today is absolutely today. Today is not yesterday. Today is not tomorrow.  Ogui

    Do not conquer the world with force, force only causes resistance.  Years of misery follow a great victory.  Lao Tze

    When we return to the root, we gain the meaning. When we pursue the external objects, we lose the purpose. The moment we are enlightened within, We go beyond the voidness of a world confronting us.  Hsin-hsin ming



    Those who know don't tell and those who tell don't know.  Zen Proverb

    When you seek it, you cannot find it.  Zen Proverb

    Wherever you are is the entry point.  Kabir



    Who is awake and who is asleep?  Lalla

    This sounds an extraordinary statement to make, but in fact all truth is very ordinary. It is peoples' fantasies of what is true that is so extraordinary.  Brian Perkins

    Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.  Helen Keller

    If you understand, things are just as they are. If you do not understand, things are just as they are.  Zen Saying

    ...laying on my cloud in the dark listening to windy rain because sleeping alone is not my forté my eyes won't close so my thoughts and i hover waiting impatiently to plunge into deep but for now floating somewhere between reality and a dream.



    ...some nights i come home and smile because the freedom i have is limitless. and then, there's nights when i come home, and kinda skip up the stairs - like i did when i was little - in anticipation, imagination running wild. to have you already be there - it'd be as soothing and sweet as the sound of my mother's voice reading my favorite bedtime story.



    I feel it in my fingers,
    I feel it in my toes.
    Well love is all around me,
    and so the feeling grows.
    It's written on the wind,
    it's everywhere I go.
    So if you really love me,
    come on and let it show.

    You know I love you, I always will.
    My mind's made up by the way that I feel,
    there's no beginning, there'll be no end
    cause on my love you can depend.

    I see your face before me as I lay on my bed
    I kinda get to thinking, of all the things you said.
    You gave your promise to me, and I gave mine to you.
    I need someone beside me in everything I do.

    You know I love you...........(etc)

    It's written on the wind..........(etc)

    come on and let it show
    come on and let it show
    come on and let it show



    Matt called tonight...out of nowhere. Why, after almost 8 months, does this boy dial me up at 1:30 am? Obviously, he hasn't changed...he's still crazy as ever.

    It was one phone call I didn't even hesitate and think to answer. There's no way in hell that boy is ever going to weasel his way back in to my life. His attempt only brings one word to mind...EW.
