i spoke to a man who is becoming a friend today about kids - he has two - from his marriage - he now is partnered - to another man -
very happily -
and he seems a great dad - very responsible but better still very caring - giving - and impressed by them.
I was talking about teaching kids today - and told him how - kids seem to really need a safe place to learn - - mentioning - how my little sister - whose mother is a raging bull -
was apparrently considered - not "smart" - i suspected they were wrong -
but - anyway - one day - when she needed help studying - as I think a 10 year old -
safely - and after a while - she started rattling those answers!!!!1 she had a memory!! sharp sharp and the answers - she got - the logic encouraged -she deciphered things - yahhooooo!!!!
we went to her - mother - she went to her mother -
and her mother tested her -
and suddenly in awe of her daughter - smacked her down - WHAT HAPPENED???
and the littlest - went without a voice -
fucking cunt of a bitch - that fucking asshole -
fear is a bad thing to tell your kids -
"...do not look outside yourself for the leader."
-wisdom of the hopi elders
"...the sign of a true leader is service..." - anonymous
