Light as a Feather

Published July 23, 2012 by Ms. Nine

 

Just when I think I’m a goose feather in the wind, I wake up and discover that I’ve become the down in someone’s pillow.  I have no idea how this happens, but somehow my writing drifts in the wind and lands on somebody’s head.  Luckily, it’s light as a feather.

Thanks to Vikki for nominating me for the Illuminating Blogger Award.  I enjoy visiting her blog and  her perspective on writing.

The rules for acceptance are:

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you 

2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back 

3. Share a random thing about yourself

4. Select five or more nominees and notify them on their blogs.

Copy and paste the award on your blog somewhere.


Here’s my random thing:  Once I taught mathematics to students in a psychiatric hospital.

Please visit these worthy blogs for inspiration and enlightenment:

    • You think? Children with compelling stories and horrifying childhoods, and psychiatrists who over medicate. One flew over the coo coo’s nest meets a girl interrupted meets American history X…

    • thanks. During the span of my teaching career, two gigs were in institutions (eight years)- one during the 80s before HMOs became the norm, and one during the 90s when a state’s education system was sued for denying a FAPE (Free and Appropriate Public Education) to its most troubled youth. In both instances, I gained more knowledge as a teacher than I dispelled as an educator. A fascinating and complex population.
