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

To Be

“To be, or not to be- that is the question” obviously William Shakespeare, it is a really good question, and a philosophical one at that. Isn’t this just a grand game? I think in fact it is, and thinking of it as such has shifted my perception, has shifted my reality. The question of existence, and of consciousness is the one most of us endlessly ponder, and ain’t it fun? I recently saw this video.

” Elon Musk has said that there is only a “one in billions” chance that we’re not living in a computer simulation.” Source 

“To die- to sleep.
To sleep- perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub!
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come.”

The guy on Facebook that runs a group called, Philosophy and Physics, is the group that keeps me supplied with all this great food for thought. We were chatting on the nature of reality. I suggested there are infinite realities, and today he messaged me a video link and said this was his belief on reality, I thought to myself, it is Alan Watts, and it was. Nothing You Can Do, Alan Watts.

Relating to my last post, Merging, and timeline shifts, I won’t go so far as saying that but strange things are popping up, some very good things. Just yesterday I was imagining J.K. Rowling had written the sequel to The Harry Potter saga. Today, I discover she has, more or less, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. What? What? How did I not know this? I am on the internet everyday, I am a member of Pottermore. I am really sort of gobsmacked that I did not know.

One other major thing that I will just hold onto because it is of cosmic relevance, and I want to hold the vision. Please join me in seeing the Earth we desire today, in joy, in peace, in harmony.

Shakespeare is in my future. I guess that is no big surprise. I have registered for all but one class. Mr. Shakespeare, Transborder Chicano Literature, and Child and Adolescent. Then once I get my fingerprint card, I will get put in the iTeach class, which will be in a public high school.

In the meanwhile I am creating my existence. If I am a character in a game, the character has become sentient.

Namaste
