I really was patient yesterday while I driving. I can't say the same for my passenger. LOL. Today I decided to spread light by offering to help. When you want to help someone, ask: “How can I help?” and also suggest specific ways you can help. First, most people are not comfortable asking for help. … Continue reading #bethelight – Day 77
Nearly ever person who asks me about my "diet" doesn't believe I don't feel hungry. I really don't. I stopped feeling hungry a long time ago. I discovered for myself that the discomfort and the hunger that I felt was really more like with-drawl. What I felt was more related to the process of detoxification… Continue reading Eating for My Health One Day at a Time

One of the greatest rewards of surviving the sleepless nights of night feedings, the sleepless night of worry, the sleepless nights of “talkative” teens, and the sleepless nights of wondering how to pay for that mission, wedding or college is the joy of being a grandparent. I love making faces at little Freya and getting… Continue reading The Gift of Love
I learned so many things from just listening yesterday. Today I need to go to Salem today. That means I need to drive in traffic. Thus, today I am going to slow down and let other merge today.

Learning something new is worth the effort!
I recently attempted to teach the basics of sound engineering to my tech theatre class. It is tough to teach large classes a subject that I think is best learned hand on when there isn’t enough equipment to go around. I was hoping to keep it simple.
The role of a sound system is to amplify and adjust the sound quality of an audio signal and to provide an output for a speaker system. There are 4 basic stages… input, mixing/effects, amplification, and output.
The first step is input. The mic captures the sound and converts the sound wave to electric impulses that can be fed to the rest of the system. The microphone is a “transducer” that converts acoustic sound into electrical signals that can then be processed and amplified by the system. Audio players convert the sound data encoded on a recording into electrical signals that can…

Tomorrow we open our latest production at school… The Bully Plays. The Bully Plays are a collection of 10 minute plays created to inspire the end of bullying. However, I have to admit that I am confused as to why this is an issue. Whatever happened to “The Golden Rule?” Has the Golden Rule gone out of style?
“Treat others the way you want to be treated,” How many times have I heard that in my life? It was a lesson my mom taught me before I even got to school. I heard this lesson although elementary school, junior high, and a bit in high school. Throughout my entire life I have always thought of it and tried my best to live it.
Sadly, as I have grown older I have noticed that the world has gotten meaner? Back in my youth I only needed to worry about when…
