Making Amends: Ringing the Bells that Still Can Ring

Amends, he wrote. Please let me make amends to you. My program requires it. The 9th step says that we must make direct amends to people we have harmed except where to do so would injure them or others. I didn’t understand, though later I would spend hours upon hours googling AA sites learning all I could about steps, colored chips, acceptance and giving oneself over to one’s higher power.When he wrote that he had become an alcoholic, that he had never married, never had a family, never been as…See More

Silent Treatment

Writing about teaching

Is any one else struggling with writing about their lives as teachers?  I have been wanting to write a memoir about teaching for a very long time, but something stops me.  Here is my latest blog which starts to address this. But it's complicated for sure. I would love to hear from other women teachers who have written or are thinking about writing about their teaching.  http://www.marshapincus.com/2011/04/casting-off.html See More

You told me once

when you were still talking to me

how you love voices.

 

No two are alike, you said.

Like people or snowflakes.

and quickens the pulse.

 

Voice is alive.

My favorite sound is

a sigh of exhalation

the ~~ahhhhhhh~~~ of surrender.

Instead of white, she is wearing black.  The dress is strapless and beaded, with a sweetheart neck, a corseted waist and layers of crinoline flowing to the floor. She’s a doyenne, with red lips and kohl lined eyes, her black hair rolled and folded tightly into place with pearls. She is la mere, la madre, ema, and she stands before her daughter in this…

The Way of Water or What to Do with My Anger

My anger seethes. In theory, I know it is not healthy, yet I seek out what produces it. It’s an addiction. My anger came to a peak after watching the movie “Welcome to Sarajevo.” Critics claimed it was not accurate and that there are better movies…See More
