Probably channeling a certain George, but unprompted . . . .

I am tired, but I want to share. Very little verbiage is made up for by quite of bit of foliage.
Not quite so satisfying as the [Lorelei edited] classic Oedipus, but still very moving.
You can find this here. Squeeze it. Mix it with vodka?
A quick look at their site says a lot.
Imagine yourself put in charge of coordinating a schoolwide process directed by this man
Starting yesterday, when I was sitting in a long training on this process, I am the WASC coordinator for my school. Basically an accreditation process that cannot be avoided. A huge morass of meetings and reports that have to be coordinated through a very opinionated faculty and staff. Seriously, there are faculty members here (remember it’s an art school) who will literally weep and wail when I assign focus groups, tasks, and the like. Much drama.
I’m pushing for a sizeable stipend for this extra role. Maybe enough to pay for Prism’s day care!
I am going to this all day meditation workshop for my birthday this Saturday. It is at Spirit Rock.
Julij and I did some of this meditation practice as a childbirth class. At the time, it was very new to me, but now I actually miss it. I miss the calmness in my brain. I’ve been practicing mindlessness lately, which isn’t working out nearly as well as I had hoped . . . .
“Exploring power, ownership, and equity in an early childhood classroom.” My dear nerds and geeks: do you feel that playing with Legos led you to become heartless, capitalist pigs? Or was it something else? Or do you deny being piggly altogether?
I do find many problems with public educational methods these days. I teach in the Oakland public schools – a big mess. But I can’t even read this rag any more. It takes so much brain power to un-un-un-un-spin (alternatively, anti-un-re-de-construct) their flimsy arguments, that I end up more confused than when I started. And then there’s my very strong gut feeling that LEGOS are a force for good in a kid’s life. I’ll stick with that and stop paying for this kindling.
