Where Can We Start?

A worldwide issue, poverty is felt most deeply by women and children. What can we do? I'd like to hear from you.

Organizing, Again

If I could just get organized
I'd be happy
I'd be rolling in the dough
people would come from miles around
just to admire my system
the beauty of perfectly placed shoes
the elegance of pristine table tops
the calming presence
of absolutely everything in it's place
Alas, at best, it's a work in progress
at worst, a hopeless delusion

This wasn't exactly what I was thinking of when I searched on "hope." But this seems like an example of one of my favorite Rolling Stones songs: You don't always get what you want, but you get what you need!

Sometimes a good laugh is what I need and Mr. Hope is always able to deliver!

The Wedding

The Wedding Candles by Marc Chagall

The bride was beautiful, 
the minister a bit much, 
the rain not so bad, 
and the nineteen course 
sit-down dinner for millions 
well, just beyond belief. 
May they and we all live long and prosper.

And the rain came down. . .

The wedding will take place outdoors at 3:00 this afternoon. Chance of rain: 40%. Rain right now: light. Chance of a beautiful wedding and joyful family and friends: 100%. Life is good. MTK!

Vacationing in Vancouver!

Here four days for a wedding. Eating too much, and having great fun. What a wonderful way to celebrate my decision to QUIT after school, forever and always. (Except for going in one last time to finish the teacher timesheets and pack up my personal stuff, etc.) It's a long boring story how it all happened that'll have to wait for another day. Suffice to say, I'm pleased with myself!

Coming Up for Air

School is harder than expected, the weather hotter, the enrollment larger, the staff...well, mostly good, some difficult, the principal a real treat, the best since Marilyn at Hall District. I'm on a dead run constantly, trying to get a passport so I can make my trip to Vancouver with Shie-fang (who knew that you needed a passport for Canada!)
