No, really. THIS is how I do it.I think about a lot of random stuff and I like to write it down. I believe in a lot of things and I think an equal amount of stuff is total crap. I am a cynical optimist. I am real. I like synchronicity and idiosyncrasy. My brain works quickly, which does not guarantee accuracy but is not A.D.D. Usually my mouth works even more quickly. I thought being really tall and living in Asia was pretty cool; but I am super glad to be back in California now. I want to be happy, bendy and satisfied... Because really, who wouldn't?

The Dark Side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities, some considered to be unnatural… I am currently teaching a unit on imperialism in World History. We are working through the causes and effects of imperialism and the … Continue reading
Up from the basement to my best friend’s farm Where we’ll work so hard, we can do no harm We’ll till the land and duck our debts Underneath soft sun, chewing Nicorette This will be a better year This will … Continue reading
