The Waking

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I cannot go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there,
And learn by going where I have to go.

Light takes the Tree, but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair;
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air,
And, lovely, learn by going where to go.

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.

--Theodore Roethke

I'm Where?

Dickson has a good place to eat! Friends and I went to the Corner Bistro and had such a delicious, well-presented meal with wine that we didn't believe we were in Dickson. It's fairly expensive but worth it.

Too Old to Boogie

Earl and I went to the Exit/In last night to see Susan Tedeschi in concert. We went to Nashville early for Earl to buy a new flat-screen monitor and to look at digital cameras for me. I'm going to buy one later after shopping and comparing prices. Earl said I have progressed to a higher level and can do more with one now, and I'm looking forward to learning new things. Then we went to P.F. Chang's for dinner. I had the chicken in lettuce wraps, hot and sour soup, shrimp in lobster sauce, and green tea, which I enjoyed very much. Earl liked his meal, too.

We thought we gave ourselves enough time to get to the Exit/In early enough to get good seats since the tickets were general admission. This shows how long it's been since we went to a club instead of an auditorium with seats for a concert. When we got there, the small area with tables and chairs was full as well as the stools at the bar and on the top level. Many, many, many people were standing around the walls and all over the place. I asked the bouncer who stamped my hand (long time since that, too) if there weren't enough seats. He said you have to get there early to get a seat. A SEAT! This meant we had to stand for over 3 hours crammed up with all those people who were drinking with one hand and smoking with the other. Long time since I had to deal with my hair and clothes smelling like smoke and with trying to breathe second-hand smoke. Twenty years ago I'd have been doing all this in heels and not have felt so put out. Now it was heaven when a couple of people left and we could sit down for the encore and still see the stage.

Fortunately, Susan Tedeschi is great in concert and really gave a wonderful performance. Her voice is strong, powerful, and moving. When she sang "Lord Protect My Child," I felt it down to my toes. She has quite a repertoire and sings songs from Jimi Hendrix to Dylan to the Stones to Aretha Franklin to Iris Dement. For an encore, she sang "Angel from Montgomery" which is one of my favorite songs. I am a huge John Prine fan, and he wrote and recorded it. Bonnie Raitt's recording of it has been the one I like best, but Susan's recording equals it. She's an entertaining woman singing good songs.

My feet have hurt today and I've creaked around some, but I'm not hungover. I gave that up some time ago, so some changes that have taken place in the last twenty years have helped the next day, and the smoke smell is gone after a good shower and laundering my clothes. I do miss some of my "bad" habits. Ironically, now that I have all this time, opportunity has stopped knocking.

The best weblog awards are being voted on now, and I'd like to urge you to read Waiter Rant which has some of the best writing I've read on the net. Go back in the archives and read some of his posts and see what I mean. I think you'll be glad you did. Then vote!

Ronni Bennett's blog Time Goes By should be on that list. Hers should win for best writing, header, and American blog, at least. So let's pay attention and nominate her when the time comes next year. I hope by voting that I'll receive an email, but those of you who keep up with this, please let me know when nomination time rolls around. Thanks!

Our friend Scaryduck has won several times for his blog and his tagline.

Here's the site for 2006.

Week of Death

Last week was grandchild week with Kelsey's spelling bee and keeping Brendan. This week is filled with death, reconnections, and grief. Four people I knew or knew family members died this week, so I've been to the funeral home quite often. Funerals cause us to take stock and to think of things we might not often consider, but I'm also feeling fear and anxiety again about when I almost died and have done some more what-iffing. I need to let this go and move on. I thought I had and will get some help for it now.

A friend from years ago who moved to North Carolina, Peggy's mother died. I hadn't seen her for close to ten years, so it was good to see her, her daughters, and her cousin Linda again. We've reconnected and will be back in touch again. This was the first time I've met Peggy's husband of eight years and really do like him. She seems so happy. Linda is doing well, too. It was good to see them.

Someone I used to work with and knew socially and also knew family members died recently. Debbie Lankford Daniel Cunningham was in her early 50's and loved life.

One of my former student's father-in-law who owned the Quik Stop wasn't someone I actually knew, but his daughter was friends with my honorary niece and friend.

The death that hit hardest was Dan Hall, who is Emma's husband. They've been married 43 years, and he was 66. They had a good marriage and one that caused me to believe it could work out and be much more than an endurance contest which so many of them are. They were friends as well as mates. Emma does so much for others and was there for me when I struggled with chemo and its aftermath. She started the cancer support group here and is always there for anyone going through cancer. She and I taught together, and her daughter and my son went through school with each other and were friends. She's a wonderful person - funny, intelligent, warm, caring, involved, and much more. I love her and grieve with her.

Beamish Boy Brendan in the Hood

Brendan visited me from 10:00 Friday morning until 6:00 last night when Brian and Melissa came to pick him up. They went to ChattaCon and had a great time and so did Brendan and Grammy! He's so entertaining, funny, and active! I have the most wonderful grandchildren! Melissa won two big awards and a trophy for Best of Show for the painting that was used on the Hypericon poster. You can see that and others on her site. Isn't she good? Wow!!

Brendan and I did almost get kicked out of the Bellevue Center play area, though. He was having so much fun climbing things, hopping on the numbers, running along with the other kids, and screaming at the top of his lungs now and then. I should mention here that his range is vast in all ways, especially volume. His ecstatic, playful screams were at a decibel level far beyond the other children's. All of a sudden this woman appeared beside me and said in a superior, accusatory, condescending voice, "He has to use an inside voice in here. His screaming is scaring others. Does he know what 'inside voice' means?" I said, "I don't know, but he understands 'don't scream'." So then she called him over to explain all that to him in that voice. Brendan listened to her, looked at me, and I smiled and told him to play but not scream. He did and seemed fine about it all. Then Cruella turned to me and said in that voice, "He's your son's son, isn't he?" What the hell was that supposed to mean? I was too stunned to respond. All she had to do was ask if I could get him to play more quietly without being rude to me. As she left, I noticed that she went to the information booth where she was stationed. I planned to go ask her what that meant and how she knew, but by the time we left, her replacement was there. I also planned to part with, "You're a retired elementary school teacher, aren't you?"

Home Again

I drove back last night in some snow. No problem, just wet roads. However, they're out of school today, and I'm glad they got a day off!

Kelsey came in 4th out of 44 in the spelling bee. She was thrilled and we are all proud of her. Now she goes on to the next level, which I plan to attend if I can. Then Kathy and I had a fun day of errands, lunch at Panera, and visiting. The scrapbook class was fun. Charlotte, Kathy's mother-in-law, was also there at the spelling bee and the class. It's always fun to get to see her again, too. Great trip! Now I need to prepare for keeping Brendan for THREE DAYS AND TWO NIGHTS this weekend while Brian and Melissa go to ChattaCon! Pray for me. That's a long time with a little bundle of energy when I'm not used to it and much older than when I did it before.

Away, A-w-a-y, Away

I'm leaving for Kathy's soon so I can attend Kelsey's spelling bee in the morning. I used to be one of the judges at the one in our county for several years and enjoy them. Then tomorrow night we're going to a scrapbooking class Kathy's sister-in-law and best friend are teaching. See you soon!

An Activist Moment

I actually wrote to a television station to protest a decision they made. I read in the Tennessean that our local NBC affiliate WSMV has chosen not to air The Book of Daniel because of the calls, letters, and emails they received against it. I watched it and thought it has a good cast and interesting premise. I wonder how many people complained about Desperate Housewives, Fear Factor, Jerry Springer, etc. I look at the shows that stay on the air and wonder what's going on. Joan of Arcadia and Three Wishes didn't make it, and I'd think they would have appealed to those family values viewers. Wonder what they think of Medium and Ghost Whisperer?

I emailed WSMV programming to let them know I don't like to be censored and that I have a remote control and know how to use it. Of course, I used more words than that to let them know. LOL Here's the link to the article and a link to the TV station in case you want to speak out against censorship and/or community standards. Vote while you're there since they don't know where you're from. It's embarrassing to be from the South sometimes even though we don't have a monopoly on those vocal, easily-offended people who want to make my decisions for me.

School Thoughts

In her blog Time Goes By, Ronni linked to an email chain letter many of us saw several years ago. It's the one about the list of compliments a teacher had her students make for the others in the class. At the time I read it, I was teaching a particularly negative group of students who made it a competition to put each other down, which is not unusual unfortunately. These were middle-school gifted students in an English class. That's a difficult time of life for kids and their parents. Getting them to actually compliment each other took some work, but they did it, especially when they knew their remarks would be anonymous. I typed them on the computer with a neat font and printed them out. It was interesting to watch them read their lists of over 20 compliments and try to figure out the sources. I also added one of my own in which I told each student what I found special and admired about each one and wrote it at the bottom of the list and signed it. Over the years, some students have mentioned that list and said that they still had it. If any of you are reading this, let me know is you remember that assignment.

I'm a sucker for those inspiring-teacher stories and movies. I've never gotten through Mr. Holland's Opus, Stand and Deliver, and The Marva Collins Story without sobbing. Sometimes I just cry.

I liked teaching in the gifted program (elementary and middle school) because I was with the students for so many years and could watch them grow. It was almost as if I were their aunt after a while. Our goals included higher-level thinking skills (critical, creative, logical, etc), communication skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking), and interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. They completed projects and activities around a theme we designed. Although the goals were the same, the curriculum changed every year. That kept it challenging which is why we called it Challenge Class. I loved working with those students. They are bright, funny, quirky, and energetic.

High school students were fun to teach since they are older and have more life experience. I spent about half of my 37 years teaching in the gifted program and the other half teaching mostly 11th and 12th graders. Honors English, creative writing, and art were my favorite classes to teach, but the regular English and US History classes definitely had their moments with wonderful students in them! I've been fortunate to get to know some outstanding, memorable students who have enriched my life.

Some students groaned when new students asked why they had to learn how to diagram a sentence or the parts of speech or some other aspect of grammar or literature. I'd light up and tell them I was just waiting for that question! I'd tell them they might be on Jeopardy or Who Wants to be a Millionaire sometime and would thank me for making them learn about all this stuff. Then I'd tell them the real reason is that all the subjects in school teach us to think different ways. I wasn't delusional enough to think anyone would run up to them in an emergency to ask about a possessive before a gerund or what the scarlet letter stood for. They would, however, need to know how to comprehend information, analyze it, evaluate it, form opinions, and defend those opinions. I told them I hoped they would learn how to think and how to learn. There's something to be said for the love of learning and cultural literacy, and I hope I inspired a few of them.

Over the Edge

Pat Robertson has been over the edge for quite a while from advocating assassinations of world leaders to blaming Hurricane Katrina on Ellen DeGeneres. He's a certifiable nutcase. That's one of the reasons I like this Open Letter to Pat Robertson from God (as leaked to Steve Young) in American Politics Journal.

I heard on NPR this morning that some schools are teaching Intelligent Design in a philosophy class, which is where it belongs instead of a biology class. However, it should be in a philosophy class where it is part of curriculum instead of all of it as it is being taught in a four-week class in which it is used to discredit science at a school I didn't catch the name of. Knox College has a class that sounds thought-provoking and geared toward intelligent debate. Without learning how to think, analyze, and form conclusions, we can't effectively participate in decision-making, problem-solving, logical and creative thinking, and other necessary skills to function as a productive member of society. Otherwise, we'll have a bunch of Pat Robertsons running around getting attention.

This site is an organization that defends wildlife that some of you might be aware of and others interested in. This is from an email I received from them:

Last week, Secretary of Interior Gale Norton handed over wolf management to the state of Idaho -- the same state that just a few years ago passed a resolution calling for the elimination of wolves “by any means necessary.”

Norton has refused to stop the aerial gunning of wolves in Alaska that has led to the brutal deaths of more than 400 wolves, with 18 killed in the last two months alone. She tried to prematurely weaken protections for endangered wolves in the lower 48 states-- a move we blocked in court. And she's working with Congressman Richard Pombo and others to gut the Endangered Species Act, the landmark law that's provided key protections for wolves and allowed their recovery.

Whether the threat comes in court or in Congress, on the ranchlands or national forests, at the state house or from the White House, Defenders will be there to protect our wolves.

Defenders is a national leader in innovative wolf conservation efforts. We post rewards to help capture those who illegally kill wolves. We help farmers and ranchers install predator-proof fencing and other measures to reduce conflicts with wolves. And, while wolves rarely attack livestock, we’ve established a fund to help compensate those farmers and ranchers who lose livestock to wolves.

The wolf is an important part of our national heritage and a powerful symbol of the American West. With your help, we can ensure that it continues to roam our great wild places.

Mother's cataract surgery went really well yesterday morning. It's amazing how they do that. When we went for her follow-up appointment today with the doctor, I asked about the surgery. I didn't know a cataract is a cloudy lens and that it's removed and replaced with a plastic one. An incision is made next to the iris which isn't detectable. She has to use some eye drops and take some precautions for a week. She also gets to wear Roy Orbison glasses outdoors. So - very good news!

I spent the night there last night and fell asleep in the chair while I was watching a rerun of House and stayed asleep during the new one. Unfortunately, I didn't record it. Someone let me know if anything happened on there with Stacy (Sela Ward). I do know they are together in Baltimore tonight and won't miss that.

The best news of course is about Mother. I'm so relieved that it all went well. She's remarkable.

I worked Saturday at the vitamin center. Ellen and Donna stopped by to visit on their way home from visitation for our cousin Jack Miller who died Friday morning. I went by the funeral home after work for a couple of hours. His funeral was today. Jack was seven years younger than Mother even though she is his aunt. She's the youngest of seven children with her oldest sister eighteen years older than she. Aunt Ethel married young and had six children which explains why Mother was a young aunt.

Mother is having cataract surgery tomorrow morning at 9:30 at Horizon. We have to be there by 7:30, and I am going to spend the night with her tomorrow night. She will go back to see Dr. Close Tuesday. She had this surgery several years ago in her other eye, and I hope everything goes as well this time as it did then and believe it will. She's a remarkable woman who doesn't seem or look her age of 85.

Hope you all have a good week!

Idea in Need of Help

For my first scrapbook project, I'm planning a recipe book with stories from friends and family. I've emailed some of you and have already had responses. Thank you very much! If any of you would like to help me out, please email me any recipes you like and/or are known for. If there's a story with it, please feel free to pass that along, too. It's going to take me a while to get this finished, so you have lots of time if you're busy now. I don't want to be a pest. (well, seems inevitable, doesn't it?) Aren't you glad I've retired and have all this time?

Feel free to be as creative as you choose (or as regular). Earl wrote that his family recipe was for disaster and that fortunately they didn't have all the ingredients.

What is neat is that I'll think about each of you who sent recipes when I look at it. If you also have photos you can send, that would also be helpful. I'll try to work out a way to let you see the results. Thanks to all who have or will participate.

Apparently, I'm tapering off from teaching during my retirement by giving assignments to friends and family. Should I give grades or is that going too far? You don't want to encourage me too much.

This link is to Ronni Bennett's blog about what it's like to get older. She and I are about the same age. Click on "about" and read her impressive credentials. She's been a radio and television producer and writer, The Barbara Walters' Specials and 20/20, among them. Her blog is fascinating and informative. This post is about healthcare and the mid-term elections. Please feel free to comment on her post and let her know about experiences with universal healthcare in the UK, Canada, France, and other places you're conversant about. What system does Australia have, Janey?

Btw, the header on her blog is enviable. I'd like to do that on here and would hope she wouldn't mind. She's safe, though, since I don't know how.

Happy New Year! I'm always so optimistic thinking about new years, clean slates, and beginnings. I have some goals for this year which mostly involve getting my house in order literally and figuratively which means exercise and eating more healthfully. I've calmed down some from the extreme retirement euphoria and have rested from almost 40 years of teaching. I'm getting a handle on my compulsive cluttering and believe this is the year for a metamorphosis! Yes, another promise of a transformation! Cheer me on.

My good friend Charlie who teaches 8th grade English in Maine said this: "No New Year's resolutions here. Not one. I'm into self-satisfied. LOL" Great attitude, Charlie! Love it!

What about you? Any resolutions?

Answers are posted in the Squawkbox comment place. Obviously, I need to read more. Several of us English teacher friends played this Thursday night at Tina's, and they would say about me that maybe I'd know "this one because there was a movie made from it." Guess if I'm ever going to write, it needs to be screenplays instead of novels. Then we played Conga, which was lots of fun and a Cranium game. They (Rachel, Molly, and Tina) came over to the vitamin store and brought lunch and played True Colors yesterday since it was New Year's Eve and not much business. That was a lot of fun, too.
