I know I told you guys that I would be updating old poems last night. I intended to make good on that promise…then I passed out at 8:00 pm. I’ve had a couple of exhausting days in an elementary school special education classroom. It was so bad that my eyes started to grow tired as I tried to finish the book I am reading– 11/22/63 by Stephen King. By the way, this is not one of King’s better books.
I will update a couple of poems over the next hour (and work on the redesign). Until then, I want to direct you to a poem I think many of you will enjoy. I wrote it last semester while substitute teaching in a elementary art classroom. Eavesdropping on my students is one of my favorite past-times. Enjoy.
Getting back into the swing of writing has helped me immensely. I love these memories more than anything right now. I am going to make a bit of a change to the Memory Challenge…although you will not notice. I am starting to talk about private things. Although I am okay sharing my private memories…I don’t want to share other people’s private memories. As a result, I am now changing all names. Unless you know me personally…and pretty well…you should not know who I am talking about.
I spent three and half hours today talking with my favorite teacher for high school. My mind has erupted with activity from the intelligent conversation. She also gave me a book to read. As soon as I’m done reading Mockingjay, this will be my next challenge. It is Stephen King’s alternative history book about the failed assassination attempt on JFK. I can’t wait to read it.
