Teaching Questions

Is it possible to describe the feeling when a class you teach makes you proud?
Am I of weak character if I cry in front of a class?
I wonder how many teacher's have students say "hello" to them in the yard?
Is it okay to wonder if you've made the right career choice?
Am I the only one who can see inept colleagues?
I often wonder what it would be like to sit in one of my classes as a student.

What do other teachers question?

You're the voice

She stumbles to the stage, her shoulder laden with expectation. Nestling into the chair, she lifts the instrument onto her lap. The straps accustomed just enough for her to remain comfortably numb. Patiently she awaits her turn. “You’re The Voice” no longer needs bagpipes. Not when she has an accordion.

Lucid Music

The vehicle of music is flesh and blood. The vehicle and the message cannot be separated. The moment the musician picks up his instrument he is entering the fluctuating territory of manifestation and existence that he shares with the listener.
