||I'm organized with work and unfortunately that doesn't carry over to my home, love my job, have a dry sense of humor, adore all animals (generally prefer them to people), and my idea of a vacation is being able to relax with a good book and spending time with my pets.

Lyon's Tea...love it!
|Wild Fact About Me
||We love animals in this home, so human guests need to be prepared to be outnumbered by critters!
||"Amor Fati – 'Love Your Fate', which is in fact your life.” Friedrich Nietzsche
|What Gives Me Hope
||The children I work with inspire and motivate me.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||mandating education about respecting animals & harsh penalties for harming them, completely changing the way public schools are managed, ensuring that everyone has access to free quality healthcare, reforming the justice system & removing people from prison for petty offenses to make room for serious offenders (because I'd be repealing the death penalty) and finding a way to significantly slow down or stop developers who seek to pave every inch of earth they can...that's during my first week.
|What/who changed my life and why
||my therapist... :-)
|What Bugs Me
cell phones while driving or dining,
George Bush and Co.,
People who let their dogs poo in my yard,
people who can't drive,
coconut-reminds me of toenail clippings,
people who lie,
my pets...my babies!,
learning from my students,
some very special students I've known,
watching the squirrels munch seeds,
|What Scares Me
our Government at present,
when the toilet backs up into the tub,
Religious extremism of ANY religion,
running with scissors
||If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
A thought, even a possibility, can shatter and transform us.
The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.
