About meIf I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.
~Mohandas Gandhi

Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead.
~Hans Christian Andersen

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
~Anna Quindlen

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.
~T.S. Eliot

Too much sanity may be madness. And maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be!
~Miguel de Cervantes

All animals except man know that the ultimate point of life is to enjoy it.
~Samuel Butler

How often does a man ruin his disciples by remaining always with them. When men are once trained, it is essential that their leader leave them, for without his absence they cannot develop themselves.
Plants always remain small under a big tree.

~Swami Vivekananda (1863 - 1902) Indian philosopher

I love reading, art, writing, yoga, juggling and facepainting.
Presently, I home educate my three children. I write a comic strip chronicling our homeschooling adventures.

About my libraryI admit it. I'm a book junkie. I can't pass a table of used books without seeing if there is anything good and I can't go to a bookstore without buying at least one thing. I have my local library system website on favorites. I was horrified by the Twilight Zone episode "Time Enough at Last" where Burgess Meredith collects every book he wants to read only to end up breaking his glasses.

I tend to list books that I love, that inspire me, or that we use regularly, so if my starring system seems skewed, that's the reason.

Stuff happened, go here:
Haha I can't imagine she would take nagging too kindly. She's great!

I agree with the less is more. I've had one amazing teacher that always stressed moving at your own pace and modifying to your level. In my current class, I have a hard time focusing on my body and getting into the final relaxation.

My hamstrings are the killer to my flexibility! The triangle pose is so difficult. But I love adding it to a warrior sequence.

So I've never met anyone that actually home schools their kids. What do you think are the major benefits? One of my friends is considering taking that route.
How's everything??

Ah that's okay! I love reading about it because I am a stickler for posture. I've been around so many bad instructors or impersonal instructors that I try to take it upon myself to learn the proper form. What's your favorite pose? I really love yoga :)

Have you heard from Suge lately? I deleted my fb and haven't reached her in a while.
Hi. I've been catching up with people since it's been a while and I noticed your name on quite a few of my friends' profiles. Your name was familiar and it's probably because we were in Hogwarts Express together.

anyways, as my friend says, "a long story long," I figured I would say hi! I noticed you enjoy yoga and wanted to know any suggestions on books. I currently own Light on Yoga, Tree of Yoga, and one other illustrated version B.K. Iyengar coauthored.
Hi! I'm messaging you because I'm curious to know what the "new message" icon looks like with the new design. Tim describes it on the New Design Thread. Can you message me back so I can see?

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwesome! thanks hope you guys are all doing ok! I hope to spend a weekend in NY sometime in the new year! Let's see!
Yay! And don't worry, I still have 10 other books to read before I get to that one. :)
Well, I need Foundation and Earth too!

Hey JP! I just posted my review:

I think you would definitely enjoy it.
Just saw your note! I will give you a long and proper reply shortly!
I saw you read the percy jackson series, one of my favorites! When you join our "series" group we would love to hear your opinion in our "Percy Jackson Debate" topic.
Thanks JP, No we were in no danger of being eaten LOL It is just a horrible shame all those beautiful animals, hungry and mistreated and had to be shot. Very sad! Thanks for thinking of us tho!
I hadn't checked LT for a while. You're welcome. You may like this site where the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is asking for help in building a bird ID on-line tool.

They give you a short look at a bird, then ask you what colors you thought were most prominent. This will help them use artificial intelligence to build the tool.
aaaagh! genius. i should have got that!

now that i've cheated i'll have to wait for someone else to get it. darn my impatience.

yeah, i came up blank after caboose too. I was going to switch to duel instead. fool... gruel... so many :) drool was a good one too.

"someone who lives alone" and sounds like "caboose"

this is driving me crazy.

crazier, anyway.

put me out of my misery!

MsD also...
Hi JP! I saw your thread about cat nicknames in the "Cats, Books, Life is Good" group, and decided to start a copycat one in the "LTers with Dogs" group. Hope you don't mind! ;-)
the swan flies south at midnight. Over.

p.s. she loved them so much! Very very sweet. Over.

p.p.s. you shamed my feeble birthday efforts. I'll get you for that, my pretty. Over.

I wonder if you could tell me from what production

is the "Jester" reference in #85 of the "Sec ret Cinema..."


Some years after returning from Tonga, we heard

of the then then king, Taufaʻahau Tupoou IV having

engaged a jester. Years later --either in LT

or in the NY Times online, I learned of a

one-man show based on the career of the

Tngan kingʻs American jester. *I donʻt

remember his name, and doubt tha it was Giacomo,

but Iʻm in any case curious about where the

jester "Giacomo" did appear.
Thanks for the comment. It is hard listening to her bad mouth him at times, and calling me crying that I want to make him disappear but I can't I don't live close enough to her. I understand that she is grown and can make her own decisions, but I worry that we are going to have to plan a funeral if she stays with him. Anyways, thanks. You and the rest of the gang in the group are people to chat with with.
