    I won't call for long since I pay for the minutes but they are accrued now on my Virgin Mobile pay as you go phone. No problem. I want to use some up anyway - way too much $ on there and it carries over each month. Be back with you soon. Yes, Brooke is really grown. I will post a more flattering photo of her - she is a beauty I think. Her hair is long and somewhat curly - light brown. She is a wonderful and sweet granddaughter. I love her so - the great blessing of my life. Take care and have a good week. Hope to talk with you sometime next week.

    Oh wow, I didn't even see this. I don't really know quit how to get to these messages (until maybe now, but I will forget) since the changed our format here. Personally I don't like it and wonder what purpose it serves. Anyway, just got your email, too and will respond soon. I haven't been feeling right last two or so days. I am stressed out over my medical coverage now which is horrid. I think the plan is only paying for about half my meds and I take a lot. I picture going broke fast. Anyway, glad you are not a morning person either. I can't understand those perky types. 7 at night would be good. I will send you the phone number and the area code and we will set up some evening. That would be so nice. I miss chatting with you.

    Nice of you to drop by qimi. I know I've been a sporadic participant at best lately. I've been a little busier than usual -- the governor upped our teaching responsibilities and I'm enrolled in that Masters' program, so I've had a little less time to post. Kids are doing well, my youngest girl (5) is learning to read, so it's been fun watching and helping her grow into the literary life one word at a time.

    And the late winter snow here has been great, so the Mrs. and I have been skiing the trails around here when time permits. Plus we're teaching the girls to ski too. So far the older one love it and the little one is. . .trying to love it. I think once she can keep up with her big sister, she'll be just fine. Always competitive that little one.

    How are things with you?

    Anna has very complex and strong character. I’m sure you will enjoy it till the end. I also liked the story of Levin and Kitty.

    Thanks for the background image compliment. I scanned it from Children’s Urdu poems collection. The name of that character is Toot Batoot. Funny name, isn’t it?

    I’m glad you finally received my mail, Qimi.

    Oh, sorry Qimi! I thought Puck was dead. I hope you didn’t mind my comments.

    How is Anna Karenina going? I read it a few years ago and really enjoyed it.

    Qimissung, Good to reconnect. I just had my break and all I can say is that it was AWESOME! A staycation was just what the doctor called for. I did not go to any big cities to visit people, I just relaxed and moved boxes. Ugh! I'll upload a picture of my son and I with a bunch of boxes behind us. We are closing on the log cabin next week. Who knew that it would all work out. I was feeling pretty hopeless for a while, but what can you do? I bet you can't wait until your vacation! Enjoy it!

    It has been very busy for me as well, but I do manage a few, albeit maybe 3 to 4, pages of reading each day.
    Yes, the Kimbell is fantastic, in fact the whole of Fort Worth's cultural district is great. Don't forget, you also have the Amon Carter and the Modern right there to make the drive worth while.
    Bernini alone is worth the trip though !
    I'm long overdue for paying a visit to DMA. I was hoping to see the recent Posters of Paris exhibit, but missed it.

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout

by qimissung on 12-15-2012 at 01:13 AM
I live in the United States of America, and we had another school shooting today. With horror I listened to the news reports that a gunman had gone into an elementary school and killed 27 people, 20 of them “children between the ages of 5 and 10.” And I listened tiredly and wearily to the usual rhetoric of the newscast without end as they recounted the “worst school shooting in an elementary school.”
I guess they are doing the best they can, but you simply can’t put a qualifier or adjective

In Memoriam

by qimissung on 04-03-2012 at 11:05 PM
One of my former students-he graduated last year-was shot and killed last night around 10 o'clock.

He had just finished playing a game of basketball and was sitting in a car on a dark street, with his cousin. They were waiting for his cousin's ride when another car drove up. It was someone they knew and they argued over a girl his cousin had been seeing. The young man in the car pulled out a gun and shot them. Victor was shot two times in the back. He was treated at a nearby hospital,

The Anger and The Anguish

by qimissung on 01-04-2012 at 01:24 PM
I read several good books in 2011. I read "Candide," "The Crying of Lot 49", "Housekeeping," "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," and "The Dubliners." I read others, but these I read last fall and today it is of "The Dubliners" I speak.

I've been wanting to read something by Joyce. Eventually I hope to read "Ulysses." I think that might be akin to saying that someday I'd like to climb Mount Everest, for

The Bird's Nest

by qimissung on 12-27-2011 at 02:20 PM
looking at it I knew it was different
a bird's nest
full of hope and fear
and the cavalier fulsomeness of life
the blind ability to get up each day under the weight of it all
to go out every day believing you were one of the masses
dressed in the same uniform
believing the same things
that god is good
that love will find a way
believing or hoping to believe that
the others would not notice your vampiric differences

I acquire some books

by qimissung on 12-04-2011 at 07:13 PM
I got up yesterday morning, a Saturday, around 5:45. I washed my face and dressed and walked to my car in the dark. I stopped by my local Starbucks and treated myself to a tall mocha.

I then made my way down Midway to 635; from there to Central Expressway from which I exited at Northwest Highway. My destination was the Half-Price Books located there, or rather the warehouse that I knew was located near it.

Once I arrived I noticed, somewhat to my chagrin, that there
