Hello, Samurai Mindsters!   I’ve attached many vacuums to my time lately.  I am still a high school teacher.   I am a Librarian in Training (LIT!).   I also believe I am the parent of two little girls.

You may have wondered where I have gone?  I’ve disappeared into the actual and virtual worlds of library training through Syracuse University.    I was away for the summer at the beautiful campus and then have been busy with online classes, learning, reading, in addition to my work as a personal coach and teacher.

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you may know that I have hundreds of dollars in learning how to play guitar books.  I’ve been accumulating them for years, but not really using them.   I’ve also barely played guitar and I’ve stayed a beginner.  But I keep reading (and now writing) about the […]

Somewhere across the work of Steve Chandler, I came across a saying, “You have three hours to live.  Two of them are gone.”   Of course, that “hour” could be another fifty years and I wish you a healthy and wonderful life.  This  could lead you to be depressed , panic or wake up to all […]

You may read this blog and see the picture of real wasabi being washed in clear water and think—ooh this is so Zen.  Or you may actually read my posts and think–err, maybe not. :).  It’s spring break and I have a little more time for personal projects with a heap of potential work (planning, […]
