Go ahead, pick the dragon’s nose kid.
Caper Please stop making faces! Beautiful hair, shiny, long, short, doesn’t matter–I mean the kind of hair that girls envy and say so out loud, right to his face. But, I’ll be damned if he gives me one good smile for a picture. There’s always a face, a different one for each shot. The creepyContinue reading “Go ahead, pick the dragon’s nose kid.”
The Magnetic Law
Magnet There’s a new law I found out about recently and I’m fascinated by it., sometimes horrified by it. I believe it exists but I’m not sure that I’ve embraced it. The world I live in for the time being. This world of education tends to shout otherwise. We teachers demand that students perform theContinue reading “The Magnetic Law”
Who were you growing up? Who are you now? What did they call you? What do they call you? There I was, the one who had a different opinion, the one who didn’t talk, the one who stood out. I was perfect for their names. It was an introduction to learning to laugh at yourself.Continue reading “Hey Sunshine!”
Pen to Paper
It took some focus. I hadn’t taken a pen in hand and actually written with the intention of writing a story or just writing for pleasure, even pain, since, well, a long while. The first sentence was just a sentence to begin movement. I had learned a long time ago not to expect the firstContinue reading “Pen to Paper”
A groan of discomfort plugs into what used to be us. Age has a lot to do with it. Age has mostly everything to do with it. Age and time. The amount of time they spend on YouTube alone generates hours of mind-numbing transference that leaves my teeth clenched and off-center. One of them liesContinue reading “I Win.”
I can finally hear the trees speaking to me again. It’s been a while. After a school year that seemed relentlessly long, there’s nothing I’d hate more than to talk about this school year. I don’t want to give any advice about reading, questions types, testing, and, please, don’t ask about writing, in particular, essays.Continue reading “Upward”
We are All Clowns.
There we were. Our stage lit up. Our eyes blackened, mouths drawn in the shape of a distorted smile, giant red noses, oversized coats, huge feet. We fought for attention. And, we got it. We were the clowns in Slava’s Snow Show. It all began with a noose hanging around his neck, which he onlyContinue reading “We are All Clowns.”
Chapters in a blog: InSethspiration
That writer I wrote about, Nayia Moysidis, sent me inspiration through her heroism and unencumbered writing. She also sent me in other directions, one of them being Seth Godin’s blog. Many of you may know him already. After all, he is a creative writer, blogger, entrepreneur, and internet marketing master. Once I’d read one thenContinue reading “Chapters in a blog: InSethspiration”
A fellow blogger nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger award recently, but I don’t feel beautiful at all. I did realize that there was another nomination I needed to accept before this one: the Reality Blog award. I’ve been searching for the all-elusive time to do this. However, blogging here has been relegated to the bottomContinue reading “Getting Real”
