As We Go Down Life's Paths Together
July 31, 2004
I just had to share these penguins with you. They reminded me of me and Arnold, not running marathons or loping down the beach anymore, but kind of tottering along enjoying it all. And off on the horizon there's our unicorn. We screwed up, made wrong decisions, wasted some things, harmed some others, but every path we followed was exciting, especially when I skied down the double diamond slopes before he found them!
My little drawing program wouldn't let me finish the underdrawing. No, I don't know why. Who's got the time for little things like that. I've got to get the site map ready, and all the course shared readings for the Fall. But when I saw these two, I just had to stop long enough to put them into the world I was seeing. They capture so wonderfully how I feel sometimes when I try to bounce up and start off again. And yet, I still love the sight of them. Life should be together, with someone(s). Else we lose some of those wonderful memories.
That reminds me that gerontology needs recognition of its own on our site map. And the minor matter that I left criminal justice off the site map. Sorry, I was distracted by a unicorn. They stop by more often lately on this new path I've found. I agree with Ruether, it's all inter-related.
And just for the record, I absolutely won't accept hell fire and damnation for anyone. If torture is wrong, and I'm convinced that it is, then why would you want to torture forever two old folks wandering along the beach, reminiscing about all the wonderful things in life? We have this life. And this is how I want to live it. I'll listen in good faith for illocutionary purposes to hell fire and damnatiion, to the apocalyptic retribution. But I'm sorry, I take in every cat and dog that I can. How could I leave out humans?
And together, Susan and I take in all the unicorns, too. They do stop by more often on this new path we've found lately.

- Job Potential:
- Up soon.
- Letters of Recommendation:
- Letters of Recommendation: How to get me to respond to your request. Many of you need letters. If you will follow this format, I can do them quickly and make them good.
- Dog Letters If you do not give me adequate information, but do manage to get my attention, you may end up with a dog letter. That is a letter that says that you work well with people, that you are enthusiastic, that you persist at getting things done, and that everyone likes you. Of course, my dog gets along well with people, brings his ball to them, is enthusiastic, and persists at getting them to take his ball. Everyone likes my dog. That's a dog letter. It's so general it could be about my dog. jeanne

President Bush, on his expensive mountain bike in Texas last week before his most recent accident.
Steven Senne/Associated Press
Senator John Kerry, on his even more expensive road bike in May.
- Culture Wars, on Two Wheels By Carles McGrath. New York Times. Week in Review. Published: August 1, 2004. Backup. This is a delightfully funny article. I disagree with President Bush on his entire social and political philosophy and strategy. But after reading this article, I gotta admit I like him. Even Arnold likes him. If he appeared at our kitchen door like one of our cats, we'd let him in.
Sometimes it's hard to deal with cognitive dissonance. If I dislike your political philosophy, I must dislike you to be consistent. That's crazy. I'm still just as adamantly opposed to the destruction of safety nets and to poorly planned and executed wars. I'm even opposed to wars. They kill people, and I like people. But the side of the man I see in this article is one I can relate to. Arnold and I have raced motorcycles, climbed the mountains and hills, and splattered ourselves all over the countryside. I could never do anything as coolly as Kerry appears to be able to ride his road bike. I'd probably fall off while waving. I drove my first bike straight into a tree. Come to think of it, I drove my first motorcycle straight into a tree, but had sense enough to jump off. And after all that, my first California license was for driving a motorcycle. I'm lots more like Bush than Kerry.
Maybe that's what they meant in that poll where they asked "Who'd you rather have a beer with?" The choice of "beer" over "drink" already says it all. It's a sit down and put your feet up and laugh and share kind of thing. Not a formal party. See how easily you can bias polls by the way you ask the questions?
I still disagree profoundly with the Republican lack of safety net, lack of concern for the underdog, and arrogance in being so sure they're right (knowingness). But that doesn't mean I have to dislike Bush as a person. I liked the guy in this article. I'd enjoy sitting down with him and laughing. That doesn't mean I should vote for him. We're not electing bike pals. We're electing a president. But don't be dismayed if you find that your feelings aren't always consistent. Nothing is. We live in a complex world.
Sneaky Strokes and Good Dogs
Whenever something happens in class that works out well, that inspires you, that helps in studying, whatever, take a few minutes to send us an e-mail. We'll post it where all of us can learn from it, including other teachers.Include:
- A sentence or two about what you want to share with us.
- The name of the teacher whose class you were in.
- The name of the class.
- The name of the school. We're not picky. We'll honor teachers in any school, any level. This might be a good idea to help young children learn to say "thank you" and encourage meaningful practice in all our schools. We could even start with pre-school. This is a skill needed in answerability. To discover that what you think matters is to end silencing. Even home schooling. You can send photos or drawings, too.
