Hello, my old friends from so long ago. Hello, Me.
I need to sort and process, and even though I don't have time for an online life any more, I still thought to come here to do the processing. I'm in a wonderful place. I really, truly am. I am not here to whine or complain. I am in gratitude of it all.
Doesn't mean a girl can keep all the balls in the air, though, now does it?
I am teaching again. I have been for a while. That means a return to public education. With that comes as much camouflage as I can dream up. Every. Single. Day. I think I told y'all of the story about me being in Science class last year, didn't I? The teacher was asking for the 6th graders to identify which items on a list were organic. Ok, well, my mind went to the qualifier that it must be free of round up residue, for starters....No. Sigh. Organic...which things are alive and which things aren't. Ohhhh! Ok! Head out of the dreamy spirit world I'm in half the time, and into the world of public school....Right! Got it!
So...on the list....a tree. Alive! So far so good!
Flowers....Alive! Oh yeah, we got this.
Water...Alive! Wait....wait...I mean....
Teacher had to fill me in on her definition of alive then, didn't she? And that was awkward. I really just wanted to explain to her and every kid in there that water is life, water is full of consciousness, as all the elements are...and every single thing you see in every direction is alive if you define alive as conscious, because we are all Spirit vibrating low enough to be convincingly physical....
Do not fashion me a maiden who needs saving from the dragons. I am the Dragon. And I will eat you whole.
