Just when I think I’m a goose feather in the wind, I wake up and discover that I’ve become the down in someone’s pillow. I have no idea how this happens, but somehow my writing drifts in the wind and lands on somebody’s head. Luckily, it’s light as a feather.

awesome blog to read…love to read it, thanks for all.
Thank you so much, Ms. Nine, your Illuminating Blogger Award nomination…You are doing a great job with your blog!
You are very welcome. And thank-you.
Thanks honey, and you are very welcome 🙂
What a great background detail for a writer. that would bwe fascinating to weave into a plot.
You think? Children with compelling stories and horrifying childhoods, and psychiatrists who over medicate. One flew over the coo coo’s nest meets a girl interrupted meets American history X…
Congratulations and thank you for the nomination! How very sweet of you. I’d love to hear more about your “random thing.” 🙂
thanks. During the span of my teaching career, two gigs were in institutions (eight years)- one during the 80s before HMOs became the norm, and one during the 90s when a state’s education system was sued for denying a FAPE (Free and Appropriate Public Education) to its most troubled youth. In both instances, I gained more knowledge as a teacher than I dispelled as an educator. A fascinating and complex population.
Congrats Ms. Nine! I was thinking the same thing that grumpytyke just said. That has to be interesting, would love to read more about that!
Thanks! Yeah, during the 80s psych hospitals were very different than they are today.
Congratulations on your award!
Thanks so much!
Admiration coming your way….
Thank-you so much!
Your ‘random thing’ must surely be the basis for a story.
Ha! I’ve written about it in my teaching memoirs.
