Very busy making sure I am worth my salary in these economic times. I think I am worth about 1.5x my salary, but hey.

Re: Brother Francis and his love for Snow

Didn't know about this one... could be worked into an interesting poem... I think Leonard had the same idea. I will be very interested to see what you can do with it. Jack "She entered my waist with her snow" Is that what you're talking about? (Or something close if I have misquoted?) If it is, wou...

Re: Dispreached

He never ever told his students to sit down & invent something from scratch with no guidance. There was always a project, guidelines, something to learn, and if a student didn't want to do the projects, then (since it was an art class) he could always drop the class or take a failing grade. There wa...

Re: Dispreached

Here's how I always thought about that quote. My husband taught to high schoolers art for 30 years. Often he would come upon a student who was staring out the window or into the corner. "What are you doing?" he would ask the student. "Thinking," the student would reply, "trying to get an idea." "Sto...

Re: Dispreached

Would you be comfortable having a stroll with someone whose experience tells him that the mind brains? The brain, already being a tangible thing in the real world, holds more reality for me in my experience than a 'thing' you call a mind inventing a tangible organ in the real world. It's like sugge...

Re: Dispreached

Re: Dispreached

preaching a bunch of shoulds, or if onlys. I wonder if to be dispreached, if this part of the head might need to be quieted a bit so that other parts of the head can find their own voice again. So maybe it would be a combination of submission and self direction. All the parts of the brain are just ...

Re: Dispreached

You can't be dispreached by another person, only by yourself. Otherwise, it is still preaching. Another person can be involved, even helpful, but he can't do it to you. You don't get to be passive. If you believe me, then I have just preached to you, though I may have helped you dispreach yourself f...

Re: What exactly is an A**hole?

tête-à-tête, since you asked.

Awww, I am a crumpet?
