David's Musings

                A couple of days ago Jasper and I were returning from our walk when we passed a new flower, a wildflower, on the edge of Crazy Dave’s garden.  It was yellow, and square, and perched like a gem in the middle of a leaf, opal or topaz-like.  I gave it a good look but […]

Musings on Music

Module Number Two in “The Place of Music in the 21st Century Classroom” has some very thought-provoking content exploring how popular musicians and producers forge their paths in the industry. The vast majority learn their craft not through conservatories or colleges, but through a self-directed “underground” system. As someone who has taught high school for […]

Reemarkable Musings

I belong to what I want to term “Generation Grey”. Neither Black, nor White, but Grey. Born in the early 80’s, my generation grew up alongside Technology of the 90’s and together we landed in the Digital Age where my generation beautifully adapted to it to the extent that we cannot distinguish it from our […]

Musings of a teacher

It always feels like educators are re-inventing the wheel with the multiple re-packaging of ideas and trendy buzzwords. In reading, ‘A Framework for Adopting Collaboration 2.0 Tools for Virtual Group Decision Making’ I had a few aha moments. Education is a lot like a business. Collaborative Inquiries are being tooted as effective practices for schools […]

The saga — known as La Matanza, or The Massacre — had always been there, in relatives’ musings about what might have become of the family’s wealth and influence if not for the killings so long ago of hundreds of Mexican-Americans by members of the vaunted Texas Rangers who took justice into their own hands.

Musings of a Meandering Widow

For The Grieving I wish for you love and support on your darkest days. I hope that you have someone who never lets you down and stands in the face of tragedy with you. I hope you find unwavering love surrounding you. I hope your tribe closes around you and that you never feel alone. […]

Musings of a Chaotic Mind

I had a plan for this week’s blog post, but it’s gone a little sideways thanks to Facebook. So, I’m putting off the post I was working on “Making rules with your sub.” for now, to work on something else. Though if I get inspired I’ll see if I can wrap this topic up first […]

Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha

The game is rigged.  We all die.  And the end can come a hell of a lot sooner than any of us expect. So take stock of what you have, aim as best you can, and take a shot at achieving your goals.  There’s no reason not to go for it.  Not tomorrow, not the […]

Baby Boomer Musings

Several of my friends meditate. Their practice ranges from attending regular meetings to going on week-long retreats.   One studied end-of-life care grounded in Buddhist practice. When I was struggling through a failing romance, one of those friends sent me an article from the Buddhist magazine “Lion’s Roar.”  It characterized the struggles that are a […]
