Three Beautiful Things 09/23/07: Rarin' to Go, Sleepless, Black Hole Illness

1. I have my course syllabus and calendar ready to go for my three sections of WR 121 and I'm stoked to get started.

2. I finished my sibling assignment. The project stimulated me, finding pictures to accompany "Sleepless", a composition written and played by my long-time friend and fellow Kellogg High School graduate (Class of '72), Tim O'Reilly. Scroll down to the post below and you'll find my slide show.

3. Jbelle turned me on to an insightful blog post about depression. It rang true. One day, I hope, it will be accepted and run of the mill knowledge that depression is a mental illness, no more a matter of the condition of one's will than contracting the common cold or cancer. You can read Michael McGrorty's piece here.

Pert: what an awesome exercise. 'Really enjoyed the video. Amazed that you juxtaposed the process (video to audio) and produced this! You need to capture all these techniques in an "anti-writer's block" book. Thanks!
