    well i live in houston so my first thought was to go to the basketball team, but i’m more of a mavs fan. the other sports reference i can think of is the shamed roger clemens, who also oddly enough, applied his craft in the houston area. this word evokes more tangible images, although i’m […]

    tough one. not sure what i think falls in to the ‘endless’ category. sadly, i think there are some global conflicts that start to make it to this category. perhaps a big part of coping with anything in our lives is the fact that we acknowledge that there will be an end at some point; […]

    can i say it’s itsy bitsy? funny this word should pop up today, as my daughter was singing this song in a different language yesterday afternoon. a spider, to me, is something that sets a trap and lays in wait for other to stumble in to it; not exactly the way we would like to […]

    i’m trying to think of all the times that someone has looked at me and could have made the decision that this is how i looked. after a rough day at work? after a marathon? after my first day of teaching? before a big exam in college? maybe the better question, more reflective, that i […]

    is something most people don’t have enough of. is probably the reason most people fail to achieve what they are capable of. is what all teachers beg for. is what most parent want to provide. is something that keeps people happy, secure, safe. is something that can guide. is generally part of tube socks.

    is a magazine. it also seems to be an important part of early education classrooms and gifted programs. it seems like a word that denotes a natural way of acquiring knowledge. it brings me back to youth, perhaps it’s not a word that adults like to deal with…way too much unknown involved.
