G finally escapes!

I love this teacherutopia here in this enchanted new land far away from JesusLand! The Serendipachi Mts. are in our backyards! Buffy and I can go playing in the mountains and mountain prairies. We can walk up the the peak and walk from about 6500' to about 9000' ! I'm looking forward to actually hiking or biking up to the peak where we can pray to the universal energy of all animal and plantkind, not just the Kristian god (my perspective on this new Republican version of Him is very much tainted).
I'll chat with you for 5 more minutes before all the teachers and family in this teacheridge community gather together for a barbecue!!. Knock on wood, but I actually feel finally welcome in a community where I'm excited about making a positive impact on the emotionally challenged students I'll be helping to guide. I'm learning Navaho and will learn from my students and the community everything I can so that I might help them better.
Aheehee! lata mates!

He then finds out he bashed a poor neanderthal when he thought the victim of the bashing was not even drawing about him. The hominid's fragile ego then became upset because they weren't drawing about him anymore so he goes on another one of his tantrums!....she rolls her eyes...here goes creative license;

Peter Pan Syndrome

I have a little time to chat with you today. I hope to do a cut and paste about the above topic that many people throughout the world display symptoms of. They are reluctant to take on the responsibilities of adulthood and I remember reading an essay about the Gilligan Syndrome which is the modern day version. I have been impressed with Johnny Depp's version of James Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, a play about a boy that never grows up. The movie, Finding Neverland, captures the author's feelings about a child who lost his youth dealing with the death of his father. He made the play with a way to reach the childhood fantasy of this sad young boy.

I think about Johnny Depp's impression of James Barrie as a funny man enjoying the company of children more than adults. Julie Christie does a good version of the the grandmother of these children. I feel that I can empathize with his feelings by enjoying hanging out with young folks often more than adults that have squelched the…
