Explorations of mind, paths, and life


Posted on June 17, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | Comments Off on 8:14

We have had a lot of brief power outages lately due to late afternoon monsoons (I love them, but damn the clocks!) Of course, we eventually get lazy about resetting EVERY digital clock in the house, focusing on those that keep us functional. This morning, however, was bizarre; placing my mind in an Alfred Hitchcock […]

Edge of my seat

Posted on June 15, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | Comments Off on Edge of my seat

I have only 10 more papers to read, I am on the edge of my seat – literally. I have been reading papers for two days. Approximately some 200+ assignments. Justin came in to make corrections to my posture, seeing that there was an obstruction at the back of my chair that could cause neck […]

Humans are Strange

My only followers, graciously, are family. Sometimes I wonder if that is good or not. I really enjoy my blogging time lately as a respite from the piles of jobs I have, and as I often teach the students, CMC (Computer Mediated Communication) often opens up a level of honesty that F2F (Face to Face) […]

As I weed through inputting grades for approximately 82 Quizzes, and download 71 papers either late, very late, timely, or extra credit, I am oddly amused by the rush.

The Masses

There is nothing like taking a trip to a major theme park. Acclimating to a blend of languages, Orlando humidity, and stupendous lines of sweaty tired bodies moving along like rehydrated mummies, smothered onto long concourses whose climactic termination is rarely visible from the start of the end of the line. $7.50 for a refillable […]

And the Boat went on…

Posted on June 8, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | Comments Off on And the Boat went on…

It is interesting that such a huge vehicle, like this boat, floats; with so much steel and wood and people, it towers over the ocean. I keep thinking the damn thing should be top-heavy as I have no concept of how deep it goes below the water. In the harbor it simply looks like a […]

Cruising Waters

Posted on June 1, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | Comments Off on Cruising Waters

Certainly cruising is an interesting endeavor. As far as getting on and 20 verifications of who you are along the way to the ship, it turns out that good weather makes for fairly easy sailing. When I first got to our stateroom, I felt like I was in a catacomb, and for those people who […]
