I thought I had written you an honest comment about my email issue, and then I signed in and it disappeared! Just in case you have it, I won't go into it again...but my emails, while entertaining, are frequent flops. For some reason, I just don't care. It's like an obsession.

First of all, I would just like to say that there is absolutely no evidence to support these allegations against Harmony Science Academies in Texas. The people I know that work for Harmony are a blend of nationalities, and not just Turkish. They are also from various faiths, and therein... Continue reading

This week I have been busy fighting with an aging air conditioner; attempting to keep the house under 85 degrees has meant darkness in all rooms, living in a fan-induced wind tunnel. By Midafternoon, I Feel as if I am One with Nature Yes, I have been busy reading Thoreau,... Continue reading

If I said I wasn't happy to write under my old banner again, well, I'd be lying! So much has happened this year that needs to get recorded, but I have been too busy to write for fun. What with teaching, taking grad classes, and looking after two dogs and... Continue reading

Thank you God, I was accepted into grad school at a nice, big, Texas college last fall. I started my classes in January, and now my life has totally changed. I am no longer bored at night, and I love my classes (I'm taking two). I took composition theory as... Continue reading

It's Sunday afternoon, and I am way behind on lesson planning; but, I just had to share this poem today with my readers because I miss my writing, and it's not really about you. In fact, most of the time it is never about anyone in particular, but more about... Continue reading

My name is Bob, and ever since I was born I have been unusually smart. My literacy journey started out the right way. My birth mother had excellent pre-natal care, and I came from a small litter. My humans read aloud and talked to each other in the house, and... Continue reading

With all of the rainy weather, it's easy to imagine an old three-story home perched on a majestic hill, overlooking a steep cliff, with a rumbling brook cascading below a barn filled to the rafters with lovely antiques and collectibles. And if you follow Paula's Barntiques @barntiques859, then this is... Continue reading

If you are feeling blue and the world is overwhelming you, then check out the extra special Twitter account belonging to this young, positive-thinking African American male. His tweets were the first place I looked this morning for inspiration and relief after a long Wednesday workday, followed by a hectic,... Continue reading

Another insipid day inspired by abusive lips that never stop moving Flapping and flapping like gull wings jetting across a blank scarlet sky of hot southern doom. Humiliated and forlorn, limping to the car, another skipped duty across a schedule of moronic mediocrity and endless talk coupled with lips smirking... Continue reading

An "unfiltered voice" for what we would like to say but maybe shouldn't. With almost 17,000 followers, the Blunt Educator has a dedicated group of fans. One of the reasons that I enjoy this teacher's tweets, is that just by seeking employment in the education industry you lose some of... Continue reading

So, tonight I sit here in the quiet solitude of my office and I ponder all the changes that life has brought to me, and the metaphorical meanings of the symbols around me...what does it mean? How do I internalize the meanings of my child pushing me away from his... Continue reading
