Almost 4:20 on another Lazy Sunday afternoon in the windy desert spring
the stars in the desert are so beautiful, shame about the lights
and then its nice to have some intellectual conversation until the wee hours in the am while expanding our horizons...;)
I'm starting to wish that most of the teachers would stay as I get to know them and start having hope for the world. They are young intellectuals , with various altruistic past endeavors such as the peace corp and TFA....
we all share the same hopes for a cleaner less violent world...
I walk past the houses of the village, the older duplexes and triplexes have a much homier feel with the much larger yards than the newer more clone like homes....
the various gardens are all being planted for the fruits and blossoms of June...
it would almost be fun hanging out here for a couple of weeks in June getting to know everybody better without the stress of school!
There's only about 5 more weeks of classes before I go walkabout part of the time with Muffy. I'll have to ask Charles to watch Buffy. I worry about her like my daughter!
its a wonderful feeling with the end in sight of a fun summer...it makes you feel like a kid or only college age...you wish, Garvald!
Saturday: Back from the Pow Wow
I went with the Native American club to Albuquerque to see the gathering of Nations. It was a great trip. We stayed two nights at the Marriott and I filmed Lindsay Wagner who was in the audience. She still looks very young and beautiful . She must be at least 60. I will tell you more about it tomorrow! Buffy was so excited to see me when I came back. It was the longest time that I was without her! The other time I had to leave her at my house was when we stayed over night for the state chess championships at the beginning of the month.
Sunday: from newsbusters.org
I can see how some thought that the Bush impersonator was funnier than Colbert. It's amazing how much of a perfect clone they picked. He had his mannerisms and talk perfected. Saddam had doubles so I guess Bush should do the same since his popularity is sliding and the world's animosity towards him is growing! I think this impersonator would actually do a better job reading the scripts so that Fox " wouldn't have to edit" his video clips so much!
It only helped Bush that he could make fun of himself just as Reagan was a master of self effacement.
Colbert had alot of cajones to poke fun of the Bush and the administration. It appeared that many of his jokes went flat because of his audience but in a different crowd there would be a much different reaction. Colbert played the part very well and it almost seemed like he was a combination of many of the characters who reside on this site in need of a serious reality check.
Tuesday 12 minutes after 420, Just had my teeth cleened getting off a little early on Wednesday. Now later, maybe I can check out the ballroom dancing and have a couple beers to celebrated no cavities, Ma!
I'm generally happy with things. Mcb came by the life skills class and glad she didn't catch me at the computer. I don't want any animosity towards me in from the assistants about being on the computer a couple minutes. Today, I took Randy for a walk outside in the courtyard. It was a beautiful morning with the trees coming to life along with the new mural on the prison like wall of the band building gradually evolving ...now the Serendipachi mountains have been painted and the sun...it looks good!
Vinnie, the art teacher showed me the sketch of how it will look with a cougar on top of the mountain and the stars to one side and the sun coming up on the other horizon. His fiancee is the corn pollen teacher (It deals with Navaho culture) and she is getting her class involved with it!
My chess players are more enthused than ever about getting in as much chess as they can almost begging for more practice. There are 4 of them than are very competitive with each other. They all have some type of learning disability but I can their games evolving into much better play!
Wednesday: the more I think about today, I realize that I'd put it in the top 5% at least for these past couple of years...nothing eventful today, only the dental check up with no cavities!
Getting along with Betty Lou again!...
most excited about the impact I'm making on these young chess players with learning disabilities..They can't get enough chess. I'm excited again about these players doing well in the district wide indivdual tournament in town. I'm excited about making a "human chess movie"!...
excited about: learning more about the Navajo culture as they learn to accept me..
about these rice crispies with a little sugar and iced milk!
about seeing Muffy in a few weeks...
about the murals on the school walls,...
about success coming to this poor town!
about living a long life with so little time to do so many things!
was that the spark that incited all the artists, authors, leaders, etc.?
they realizes their mortality and did something great, overcoming their own mid life crisis??
about how wonderful it would be if there was another chance to be on this exciting earth! If I knew I would be coming back I would be so much happier yet I would want fit so much into this short life!
