"The reason for their invisibility is that they wear their jobs like camoflage, blending into the American Dream, the American Myth, which holds that anyone who works hard can prosper. It is such an important myth in defining what we imagine to be our reality that Richard Wright called it 'the truth of the power of the wish'." - Connecting the Dots by David K. Shipler

 

Remember to claim your edits.  Brennan added the above quote from Shipler.

 

Here's something I just came across about "seeing" beyond your "limits."  A friend of mine (also a teacher), Josh, shared a video with me about Nick Vujicic.  It's called "Life Without Limbs."  What an inspirational story!  It really reminds me that we're here for a larger purpose, for a greater reason, to show love and care to others and to encourage them to live, truly live.  Check it out.  LifeWithoutLimbs.Org

So I officially made the final choice on my LIA topic this morning.  After experimenting with different ones, I found a topic that I think I might be able to squeeze 1000 words out of.  I'm basically starting completely over, but I'm already much more satisfied with the 752 words I have written so far.  A happy writer makes a happy reader, right?  Well maybe not, but let's just go with that.  ~Erin*

 

The Be Good Tanyas--"Junkie Song"

 

YouTube plugin error

Artist: Be Good Tanyas
Song: Junkie Song
Album: Chinatown

 

Took a walk in my neighborhood

It was two in the mourning

By the skytrain station

The streets were full of junkies and homeless

And they all wanted something

They all wanted something

And what am I supposed to do?

There are too many of you

Too many of you

And sometimes they look you straight in the eye

Saying 'I too am human, you could easily be here

Easily be here'

Although we all hover between apathy and compassion

Fill up all our days with so much distraction

Whatever makes it easier to see what we don't want to

But we all live here

We all live here

We all live here don't we?

Took a walk in my neighbourhood

It was two in the mourning

By the skytrain station

The streets were full of junkies and homeless

And they all wanted something

They all wanted something

And what am I supposed to do?

There are too many of you

Too many of you

 

 

 

All I Need Is Everything

words and music: Detweiler and Bergquist

Good Dog Bad Dog

Slow down. Hold still.

It's not as if it's a matter of will.

Someone's circling. Someone's moving

a little lower than the angels.

And it's got nothing to do with me.

The wind blows through the trees,

but if I look for it, it won't come.

I tense up. My mind goes numb.

There's nothing harder than learning how to receive.

Calm down. Be still.

We've got plenty of time to kill.

No hand writing on the wall:

just the voice that's in us all.

And you're whispering to me,

time to get up off my hands and knees,

'cause if I beg for it, it won't come.

I find nothing but table crumbs.

My hands are empty. God I've been naive.

All I need is everything.

Inside, outside, feel new skin.

All I need is everything.

Feel the slip and the grip of grace again.

Slow down. Hold still.

It's not as if it's a matter of will.

Someone's circling. Someone's moving

a little lower than the angels.

This voice calling me to you:

it's just barely coming through.

Still, I clearly hear my name.

I've been fingering the flame

like tomorrow's martyr.

It gets harder to believe.

All I need is everything.

Inside, outside, feel new skin.

All I need is everything.

Feel the slip and the grip of grace again.

So from now till kingdom come,

taste the words on the tip of my tongue.

'Cause we can't run truth out of town,

only force it underground.

The roots grow deeper

in ways we can't conceive.

All I need is everything.

Inside, outside feel new skin.

All I need is everything.

Feel the slip and the grip of grace again.

All I need is all I need.

Topophilia.  Research Paper.  Research Articles.  Various Musings.

 

Started with a search for the Ed Buryn quotation about money and time.  Ended up with Salmon, the Community School, and Wild Idaho.  Redfish.  Bluefish.

 

http://www.bluefish.org/thefilm.htm

 

Ed Buryn: "We say that time is money, meaning both are valuable. Both are a form of power. Usually, there is a reciprocal relationship between them; that is, abundance of money seems to go along with a shortage of time, and abundance of time with shortage of money. Money is the wealth of the materialist, and works miracles in the realm of the physical. Time is the wealth of the pilgrim, and works miracles in all realms."

 

As far as a research paper topic potential, there's always salmon:
