Here I Love You

Here I Love You

Sometimes I get up early and even my soul is wet.
Far away the sea sounds and resounds.
This is a port.

Here I love you.
Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain.
I love you still among these cold things.
Sometimes my kisses go on those heavy vessels
that cross the sea towards no arrival.
I see myself forgotten like those old anchors.

The piers sadden when the afternoon moors there.
My life grows tired, hungry to no purpose.
I love what I do not have. You are so far.
My loathing wrestles with the slow twilights.
But night comes and starts to sing to me.

The moon turns its clockwork dream.
The biggest stars look at me with your eyes.
And as I love you, the pines in the wind
want to sing your name with their leaves of wire.

Fire

Belated Gong Hei Phat Choy folks! I am a Fire Rooster, 1957, last rooster year what was it 2006, it wasn’t my favorite year I can tell you. But all signs point for this one to be a whomping good year for me, and my Fire Rooster boyfriend. He is painting a lot, and he has painted a Fire Rooster, but this isn’t it. I am not sure of the above artist, it is signed.

School is keeping me busy, as usual. OMG I have to walk a lot. I would take my bike but that would me putting it on my car, taking it off, taking it onto the lite rail, so forth, and so on….so I walk, and carry a super heavy backpack (I look at carrying the weight as an active karmic burn off lol). I am doing a lot of teaching presentations in all my classes and have done in my internship as well. I like the high school I am at, but it is far…… well 30 minutes, that is far for me. My mentor teacher Mr. Lopez is super fly. Sorry I am listening to “Super Freak” so the word “fly” just came out.

I have been entertaining Study Abroad at Oxford, I submitted the application, applied for one scholarship….but I am reconsidering as 10K is going to happen only if, 1) strike oil, 2) win lottery, or 3) a rich relative I don’t have dies and leaves me all their money. But I DID enjoy the dream and the emails that were headed Oxford. So I have it out in the grey creative matter. It could happen but I really need to focus on this degree which the Oxford credits would not apply to. I did see a whole list of English department scholarships that I am going to get on top of but they are not study abroad scholarships. Grammar is kinda fun. Wish me luck on my first Grammar exam Tuesday, plus two teaching demonstrations next week.

Well that about brings me current. Love yall ❤

Return

Horray! Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy! I rejoice that I return to school on January 9, when Mercury goes direct, and it is my good friend, Ed’s birthday! I am SO ready. I have a new internship, and although it is a little farther than I wished, it looks like a great high school. I have connected with my school friends, ordered my books, and BAM, I’m ready.

Even though Mercury has been retrograde, and the usual MR activities occurred, it all worked out somehow, and for the better some occasions. I was going to share a great article on 2017 planetary alignments, but instead I will just link it here.

Also a Pleiadian Message~ The Great Changeover 2017-2027 ~ Barbara Marciniak

Also if anyone is interested I have added all my YA book reviews, and some critical analysis to my Digital Classroom here.

Namaste

In Retrospect

all-beauty

Happy New Year everyone! I do hope the end of the year and post Christmas week has been good to you. That rascally Mercury Retrograde has been a “bleep” . . .  Fun! Hey but so far I have survived, and I hope you have too. I have read 5 books since school got out, and done some cleaning. When my good friend Queen Suzi called me the other day and ask what I was doing, I answered, “Reading my dream journals from 2006” to which she said, “Good Mercury Retrograde activity” which it was. I kept a dream journal from 1997 to 2006. My life in Los Angels started to unravel around there as it morphed into the new. They were interesting, and detailed dreams. As I read them I recalled the dreams and I was surprised how well I had remembered some of them even sharing them with friends.

I also came across a letter from a friend who was kindly reprimanding me for bad behavior, boy that was hard to read but. . . I realized that it was something I still needed to work on. I have resolved to do so. The one drawer contained all this insight. It’s good to clean sometimes.

“Hello 2017. You’re new around here. It is nice to meet you.”

What You Will

In the last week of classes for this semester, and what a whirlwind it has been. So much work, but so much fun. I guess I just love school. I had to say goodbye to the 8th grade Honor’s English class where I interned. You get attached to those humans, my mentor too. My internship was really a great experience and it allowed me to see I enjoy teaching. I have several unfinished Signature Assignments yet to turn in but they all have designated time to complete, so I will be fine.

The fantastic art of Matisse is integral to my third and final paper for Mr. Shakespeare professor. He has been so challenging, but ultimately well worth it. For our third paper he wants a critical analysis of our production choices in directing, and producing one of three plays; IV Henry, Twelfth Night, or Othello. I have chosen to produce (on paper for now) Twelfth Night, well I am actually using a framing device and I am having Gertrude Stein produce Twelfth Night, on January 6, on the Feast of the Epiphany, in the current year of 1916. I will create a prologue where the Fitzgerald’s will inform the audience through their discussion. Gertrude has decided to mount the play on a dare from Matisse. Stein will be playing Maria, who in this production desires her lady, Olivia, and has a punishment Matisse must play Malvolio. Olivia will be played by French actress, Musidora. I am time-traveling baby, yeah! The rest of the play is cast but for the purposes of the paper I am focusing on this sorted love triangle. The characters will be introduced in scene transitions with a tango leitmotif. I don’t want to say more as I could plagiarize myself as the paper is yet to be submitted. I am having a blast writing this paper. So Au Revoir for now. I will be free in a week. Oh and Mr. Shakespeare professor gives a final exam, and not an easy one, part 2 has an on spot viewing an a 5 paragraph spontaneous critical analysis essay. Yeah. Wish me luck. lol
