I Wanted My Own Bitchin Camero

 It’s the mid 1980s. Bands like REO Speedwagon, Foreigner and Wham! ruled the charts. But there’s an underground movement bubbling up — punk rock.Listening to my Sony Walkman late at night, the local college station would spin strange songs and bizarre artists. Sometimes, the songs were so awful my ears hurt. Other times, the music seemed plain boring and vanilla. But some magical nights, the DJ was speaking directly to me....more

If your son invites you to a concert... go!

Mother's Day gift this year?  A cross country flight to visit my son at college.  He was a fun and gracious host, enthusiastically introducing me to roommates, friends and teachers.  Best part? Front-row seat at his a cappella concert. The music was magical and brought me to tears.  So if you get an invite to visit your adult child's world... go for it.  Here is a taste of what I so richly enjoyed: http://voqel.com/i/1891   ...more

It is the end...

The end of the school year is approaching rather quickly and I am not sure I am ready for it. Last year around this time, I had to say goodbye to a couple coworkers that I truly cherish and it has been so very hard this year without them. It truly has. There are always changes as a teacher. Each year is different. However, when you work with people that make you laugh, make you think, and can be yourself around..it is so hard to be without them. Every single day I miss them still and it  has been months and months. This year, I will say goodbye to even more coworkers....more
