To Do

Call Diana. Fill out the VWP and submit it. Get the passport dates straightened out. Completely rule that out. Search for My Little World paperwork and go next Wednesday, June 17th. Read You Are Here and Work. Research on the daimoku. Buy cards the for the birthday people. Check out luggage. Ask about renting the room downstairs. Get online to a desktop computer- unsubscribe to Photobucket yearly subscription data services and pay the laboratory fees for Alexander.

Detail oriented, able to read between the lines, makes it works for you.

Check ENA before driving down the autopista. Print out ties and colour them. Choose one plant from the Metropolitana. Ask to borrow the shovel on the back patio. Print out the IEP form. Find forms for traveling with a minor. Start authentification.

Putting your differences aside. No social loafing. Knowing that we can accomplish great things together. Happiness depends on work and courage. Faith. Diligence. Mindfulness. Concentration. Insight.

Peace means independence and freedom to be oneself. Having similar lifestyles. Courage. Be the change. Teach them how to think not what to think. Do not search for instant gratification. To be or not to be, that is the question.

Simile: The Problem

For women, men are regions.
For men, women are cars.
Because women are regions, like Lake Townsend or Six Flags.
And men are cars, like BMW’s and Toyota’s.

* At least once each class period, refuse to answer a student’s question and instead get everybody to look up the answer.
* Instead of marking exactly where the mistakes are on a test, essay, or homework assignment, tell students how many mistakes there are and challenge them to find every one.
* Let students try planning an entire class period and recording themselves giving that lesson. The ability to teach something clearly is the best test of whether you understand it. (And there’s no faster way to help them appreciate what you do!)
* After a test, give your students the same test again, but fill it in first with actual wrong answers that students gave. As students grade this test and provide corrections (a process typically reserved for teachers), they’ll have to think not only about the right way to do things, but also why someone might make each particular error.

My Jotter

Questions-> Why would a town or a city change their street names? What is developmentally appropriate? What is considered the correct age for kids to go on field trips with their class and teachers? What are considered performance enhancing drugs? Topics-> What would Buddha do? The river is flowing. Impermanence. Even the self. One moment is worth 3,000 moments. He would stop and think about it.

Hit the high road running. Crossing the rainbow bridge. Suffering and Joy are black and white. We are not animals, we are humans. We are evolution. Children should feel happy, safe and healthy. Working on my zancada=cadence. Finding a monthly wardrobe inspiration and being the motto–> You are what you wear.

Scrabble-> Visa Waiver Program, Chilean Embassy, U.S. Embassy, Panamanian Status. Transfer money. To do: see Alexander’s paediatrician. June 26 or 28. Go to the Buddhist gathering on Saturday, June 13. See the Alternative medicine therapist June 26, 28 or 29. Sign Alexander up for school at My Little World, Wed. June 16th. Bring all of the paperwork. Begin on July 1st. Go to the Tropical Party on July 3rd. Make a poster board “All About Me” photo collage for kid of the week on June 2st. Archetypes-> the Buddha, an elk, my Mom, a teacher. Letters: Fear, shame, apologies.

People want to know and also end up pondering, what age are you actually an adult. Well I’m going to tell us it’s 32, because now your age no longer has a calendar day and you are no longer important. I have exactly 11 months to go.

The Skeletons in the Closet

Italo Calvino said: The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts.

they won’t wait up, they will blow in your ear and whisper at your window. they don’t want to cause any harm because they are happy and they just want to play. The cats won’t scare them away, the spiders thrive on their dream catcher webs. But they torture you because you know them, they are the skeletons in your closet and the bones under your bed.

At least in 500 years people will still listen to Led Zeppelin and the Beatles! That’s exciting!
