Blog Action Day

Today is Blog Action Day where bloggers "gather" together to discuss proverty. What is poverty? When does one live in poverty? Is it relative? Is there poverty of the physical as well as the poverty of the soul?
I am still impressed by the teacher who asked if being homeless was a choice. Would anyone choose to be homeless? Run out of choices we do what we have to do.
I think of the poorest county in America. Up in South Dakota, the President even came to visit. Choice?
I do not believe that people can even speak intelligently about poverty and social aliments if they come from dominate culture. The world view is too askew.

Morning Zen

There is little in this world that is not a mystery. Even those things we think we understand seem to hold new meanings, new associations, new wonders. That which is ordinary and seen take a step back today and look at it new. Look at it for the first time again. Remove from the mind what the thing is, remove the preconceived notion of the thing, see it for what it is complete for the first time.

Blackberry Curve

I got a blackberry curve at the beginning of the school year. It is nice. Easy to use. The ringer and the alarm no longer function. TMobile is sending me a new phone. Enhanced protection may be a good thing to get if you are looking at a BlackBerry. A week without an alarm. Hope I can wake up on time...
