Hello dear friends. I can write that and mean it. I love this community of bloggers. We are so blessed. I am going to try and post at least once a week, Source willing. ❤ So I just finished the second week back to school. I have really studied basic Algebra in my free time during the week. I am also starting a Math tutored class this week. So I am feeling pretty good about is this far. I have memorized the squares up to 2o to the second power. I think its interesting that 13 squared is 169 and 14 squared is 196. I think of autistic savant, Daniel Tammet’s book, Born on a Blue Day. Pretty fascinating stuff. I believe my prayers have been answered. I am feeling the fun of Algebra. For now. lol
I am taking 3 English classes. Countem folks…three. An Expository Writing class, that, just let me say, is expansive. I am going to HIGHLY recommend the writers, which is all of us, to read this book, its small, Writing Down the Bones, by Natalie Greenberg. Here is a pdf link. I said to my professor, I have been a writer all my life, and a metaphysician for the last 30 years, but I had never reconciled the two. Goldberg speaks from a very Zen prospective. She suggest a writing practice of flow and stepping away from our editor, editors. Just this morning I read this post by Shree, at The Heartsongs Blog, that just floored me with its honesty, and vulnerability. I am going to share a journal entry for this class in the next post. I wanted to write about it here anyway, so Two birds with One stone.
I also have a British Literature class that is three hours every Wednesday night. Luckily for me the professor is brilliant and funny. I begin the third English class this week. English 200, Reading and Writing about Literature. Gosh, I am going to be so edumacated yall. 😉
Gong meditation tonight, whoopee!!!! I deserve it. I peddled cheddar cheese yesterday.
I love to hear your updates Sindy! How wonderful it must be that Algebra makes sense and that you are enjoying an Expository Writing class. Sounds fun…
Thanks Debra. Algebra yet to be determined. lol
Hey Sindy!! Ooo..you’re having fun with classes, which is always awesome to read 🙂 And three English classes..that sounds really cool! hehe.
And thank you for the shout out 🙂 aaaand the link to the book. I’m going to get the pdf and read it…sounds like something I would enjoy. *hugs*
I think any writer would find it a beneficial read, but you have it flowing already. I realized that all of my writing prior to reading Goldberg has been affected by my internal editors.
Love to you sis! ❤
School sounds awesome. Aleya starts school too, way cool. Glad you are getting creative with math. Thanks for the PDF, i am intrigued. Also it is tres cool that Deb and Shree connected because of your link. Love when that happens 🙂
Please keep us posted. Are you taking online or live classes?
I take both live and online classes. Math is live, British Lit is live and the other two English classes are online. Shree and Debra connected via my link? Cool! 😀
We are so awesome! The book is so good Linda, I hope you enjoy it.
we’re going to be in school together! hey, just read that linda posted that in her comment above! yaay! we’re so studious! xo
That’s right siscumba!!! Can’t wait to hear more from you. Let us know your reflections on your first week at school.
i feel like my school might be just a bunch of twittering though. lol ❤
Then I can be a part of it. lol
I love this community of bloggers as well. It’s an awesome group and so are you. ❤ Have a wonderful day at school. P&L, Lorlinda
School was cancelled today. Phoenix had historical record rainfall and flooding. lol 😀
Bummer. We (Los Angeles) had an unexpected shower early this morning but no flooding – that I’m aware of – at least not in my neighborhood. 🙂
Writing Down the Bones and Wild Mind are my go-to writing books. Never took to the Artist’s Way — Natalie’s my guru!
That doesn’t surprise me, 😀 I will get Wild Mind next. Natalie is awesome. ❤
It’s surprising how quickly Summer pasted.. School sounds to be a busy schedule again.. Here I am retired! LoL and still only posting on average one a week..
Good Luck again with all of your studies Sindy.. 🙂
School is insane…now I must get back to it. 😉
