Dream Journal

Posted 10-14-2013 at 01:29 PM by goldenmyst

I had a kind of strange dream last night. I was walking along a stream which my former wife and I used to love to canoe and swim. I was looking for a deep pool in the sand to swim in. It was getting toward dark. I came upon a picnic area. There was a young girl who was kind of frantic. She was begging for money. I gave her a couple of dollars. However, she demanded more. So as I reached in my wallet some of my cards were about to fall out. She tried to grab them. I gave her most of my money. Then...

playdough

Posted 09-11-2013 at 12:02 AM by Fauve (Reed & Red)

Assessing and Evaluating a child playing with play'dough' allows us to discover his/her initial potential,

what it(potential) was truly 'bred' for.

Playdough, as many other play-venues, is polyphonic.

It symbolically reveals many sounds. It especially denotes each child's melody.

There are baritones, sopranos., etc. Each aria enhances the opera.

Children are and will always be different from one another, yet all invaluable....

Some random pi.e

Posted 09-10-2013 at 10:57 AM by Sasha (Shiny Objects)

I suppose everyone's familiar with the number pi (approximately 3.14159265) as the ratio between a circle's circumference to its diameter. Less familiar, probably, is the number e=2.71828183..., a fundamental constant that crops up in such diverse areas as compound interest, laser power distribution, and descriptive statistics. I hopped aboard the Google train one day to see if there were a simple geometric relationship defining e that's analogous to pi's relationship to the circle.

Lest Ye Find What Ye Seek

Posted 08-26-2013 at 09:20 AM by Sasha (Shiny Objects)

I don't really remember how I met Willy Barton, just that it was in 3rd or 4th grade. He lived in another part of town and rode a different schoolbus; so we must have gravitated together on the playground during recess. He was a skinny, dorky-looking kid with straight dark hair severely parted on one side, and bad teeth. I was a chubby, crew-cut, equally dorky brainiac type. Both of us were prime targets for the playground capos, so we usually sought refuge on the hillside sloping down from the...
