it’s time for the yearly self-introspection, reflecting and starting things new. to be honest, last year was a blur. But, of course, I do have a few resolutions — albeit a few days early.

  • take more pictures!!!

I never have been the type of person to be the picture-taker. Who likes to stop everything, and tell everyone to say cheese? But really, a picture takes a second to take. And it’s nice to look back and pictures and “remember when…” SO I started collecting the pictures from this winter break. Check out the Legumes take the Mountain.

  • Write more.
  • be healthy blah blah blah loose weight blah blah (i already quit smoking!). no one really talks about the freshman fifteen of teaching. it sucks. my principle told me it would happen. self-fulfilling prophecy? probably. but still not cool.

I probably have some other ones… but I can’t really think of them right now.

catching peripheral vision
no ugly duckling stories
everyone calls themselves
Homer, undisputed, leads
each other, rebuilding
upon each other, at each
meeting but self-gazing
we wait
to see the scrapbook page
unfold.

the mirror looks at me
dead on
doesn’t flinch
a ripple in time
i
looking through
to the other side
topsy turvy
