Greetings, Anwar! You're cute. :) I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

Hey Anwar:

Thanks for the words of appreciation and congrats on getting into the EdD program! I didn't know you were going into the education field (I do teacher professional development in addition to youth leadership development in high schools, so this is near and dear to my heart), which school are you going to?
Best,
Sikivu

Hi Anwar,
Thanks for the hello.
My Dad died last week after a long period of suffering and decline. He had a good life. Some thoughts on that here.
Home life is mixed bag. What can I say.
Off work for study for a couple months. That is wonderful.
So much for me. How are you doing? Your photos are great. The dancers are truly beautiful.

Hi Anwar,
Thanks for the "hi". I've been a bit down. Work work work work work; partner on vacation in Shanghai, so on my own for a little while. Well, what can I do? Don't let it bother you, it'll pass.
Anyway, hope YOU are doing well!
Daniel

Hi Anwar,
Glad you replied.
The West is a big place - like talking about the East, although probably not as much variation as there is between, say, NY and Savannah. I tried several times to move West, mostly to either San Diego or San Francisco, but that wasn't my fate. When I finally did, it was to a college town in Oregon, then Portland, now suburb of Portland. I felt like I came "home", it was so "me". But we are all different.

You have a long life ahead, nothing wrong with trying different places and ideas. Eventually. I think most people find what suits them most.

It funny, I had a friend who moved from Malaysia to WA state. He has seen so many pictures of the Pacific NW, and thought it would all be lush Fir forests. No one told him that was only on the Western side of the state. He wound up in Pullman WA, in the high desert, about as not-lush as possible, and hundreds of miles from the Fir forests. BUt eventually he did find his way to what he wanted.

Happy Equinox to you Anwar. Keep away from the bunny rabbits, though.

Hey Anwar, Any news about grad school? And how's your semester going? We just started our spring break, so I am busy catching up on all the work that has been accumulating for the last few weeks.

Otherwise, I'm hoping to finish my book this week--what a relief it will be to have this burden off my shoulders. If you get a spare minute, let me know how life's treating you.

Talk to you later,

Hey Anwar,
You'd said you were interested in contributing to the global atheist experiences project I'm working on, but I'm not sure which of your blogs you wanted to share. I quite appreciated the one titled "Objectivity Manifests Misrepresentation." One of the comments below it stated that you were working on something similar regarding atheism; I look forward to it. Is that (future?) blog the one you mean to contribute for the book project?
As a totally random aside, my brother-in-law's name is Anwar.
Thanks,
Janna

Dear Anwar,
Yes, I would definitely appreciate your contribution to the essay project. I want to include as many different voices as possible, including voices from within various American communities. Are you interested in submitting the blog you mentioned, or adapting it for the project, or...?
Thanks very much for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you again,
Janna

Yes. Learning to let go, or reprogram yourself, is perhaps one of the most difficult things to do. I still spend a lot of time dwelling on the past. Not out of bitterness per se, but in examining how it shaped the person I am today.

Oh, yeah. I see. It is hard for me to be open at times. I really admire the art of Flamenco, because when see these singers and performers, they are so emotive -- just open with their emotions, either sadness or joy. I wish I could be so free and open at times. Of course, I think a lot of the Spanish/Latin cultures are like that.

Heyyyy! I'm doing well - classes have started up in full swing again, so I'm glad to actually have work to do! How's everything up North?

I'm sorry, I'm not following. Maybe I just forgot, but what makes sense now?

I did some contributing to some animal blogs in the past. I had a pet adoption blog and several blogs on networking sites like this one where I would write some things. I've not wanted to start a personal blog because 1.) I'm a pretty private person, so it would have to be anonymouse (like I am on A|N), and 2. ) I wasn't sure that I would want to feel like I consitently needed to keep up with it. The good thing about A|N is that I contribute what I want, when I want.

Not professionally. I have written some things on A|N, but the search feature never works for me, so I can't find them right now.

Thanks for the add Anwar. The answer is no to both questions.

Hey Anway,
Holiday was OK. Didn't travel, that helped. Had a bit of a scare due to my Dad, he's on hospice and we thought he might not make it, but he has rallied. How was your holiday?

Even here, it was a very close vote. Originally I was unhappy with the politicians for slightly whimping out and making it "marriage in everything but name", but now I think they were wise. Calling it "marriage" would have resulted in it not passing. It would only have taken a couple of percentage points for it to fail.Delete Comment
