What I do to be kind to myself.
I
have berated myself too often.  I am not
skinny, smart, talented, or rich enough.  I am not accomplishing enough.  I always felt I had to be using time to
create something.  I never let myself rest.  Sometimes, I still feel this way… I am a bit

  I love the sound of a fan.  Window fan--oscillating fan.  It really doesn't matter. Now, even though  I cannot stand the sound of a window air conditioner.  I guess because (as Betsy pointed out) one brings the outside in and the other shuts the outside o...

How to Lose a Creepy Caller

Thought for the Day
Sometimes I wake up and wonder where I am.  This is a function of moving around so much.  Sometimes I look at a  classroom of students and think--"ok, I already know these people.  They have been in my class/life/another life before." What a strange percept...
