Tonight at dinner we had a discussion of segregation, since that’s what my son is studying at school. It was a good discussion and we talked about hating on the basis of race, gender, appearance, religion and so on. The kids seem utterly confused that people would hate other people for any better reason than some people are mean (ie nasty bullies and even then, they are still people and can change).
Things here are turning green. Lots of leaves and even a crocus has bloomed!!! It’s almost like spring. I’ve planted peas. I am hoping they’ll come up soon.
My students are developing at literary webzine. There’s not a lot to it yet, but it’s at wwww.twistedink.net if you’d like to go have a look. It’s taking submissions of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, and art. Pass the word if you know of anyone who’d be interested in submitting.
Today we went to the soccer field with the kids to kick the ball around and walk the dogs. Was fun. I like soccer.
I’m in a funk. Emotional funk. Not sure why. I don’t know if it’s the fact that the man is laid off and the whole nonmovement on the house sale or something else.
I’m also working on some other things that I can’t talk about. I am hopeful that they will pan out however. How’s that for cryptic?
I also discovered this website today, which is really cool: Issuu. It’s got some really cool stuff on it and also could have some possibilities for doing some stuff. I’m just not sure what yet. I also learned some stuff on InDesign. I’ve been trying to learn some stuff about that, Photoshop and Adobe Illustrated. I know just about nothing on any of them.
