Google’s mini makeover

Posted by Ms. Herr on 06.12.2008

Google’s got a new favicon. Did you notice? I think they launched it last week (or maybe the week before…can’t remember exactly when I first saw it). Very lower case. Very 2.0. ¬†ūüėČ

LIT 140: Tuesdays with Morrie

Posted by Ms. Herr on 06.5.2008

Tuesdays with Morrie
by Mitch Albom


¬Ľ¬†kissing…good-bye earn[s] you extra credit

¬Ľ¬†tension of opposites: life is a series of pulls back & forth. like a pull on a rubber band. which side wins? love wins. love always wins.

¬Ľ¬†the key to finding meaning in life is to stop taking out the garbage

¬Ľ¬†why are we embarrassed by silence? what comfort do we find in all the noise?

¬Ľ¬†you don’t need speech or hearing to feel [friendship]

¬Ľ¬†without love, we are birds with broken wings

¬Ľ¬†offering others what you have to give. …your time. your concern. your storytelling.

¬Ľ¬†one cannot be spared the grief of loss by grieving before loss

¬Ľ¬†in the beg of life… [&] the end of life, you need others to survive, right? but here’s the secret: in between, we need others as well.

¬Ľ¬†“I’m bargaining with Him up there now. I’m asking Him, ‘do I get to be one of the angels?'”

¬Ľ¬†have you ever really had a teacher? 1 who saw you as a raw but precious thing, a jewel that, w/ wisdom, could be polished to a proud shine?

1 more inspired by the relevance of local events

¬Ľ¬†“death ends a life, not a relationship.” – Tuesdays with Morrie … adieu @AzBill

and the wisdom of another on the impending loss of my grandmother →

¬Ľ¬†one cannot be spared the grief of loss by grieving before loss

LIT 140: The Alchemist

Posted by Ms. Herr on 06.4.2008

The Alchemist
by Paulo Coelho


1st reading

¬Ľ¬†the lake into which Narcissus drowned weeps for him, for it was in the depths of his eyes that she sees her own beauty reflected

¬Ľ¬†intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into life’s universal currents, where histories & knowledges of all peoples are connected

¬Ľ¬†people need not dear fear the unknown so long as they are capable of achieving what they need & want

¬Ľ¬†when you cannot go back, you have only to worry about the best way of moving forward. the rest is up to Allah, including the danger.

¬Ľ¬†when it is not a battle of good & evil, but for the balance of power, it will last longer than others – because Allah is on both side

2nd reading

¬Ľ¬†one is loved because one is loved. no reason is needed for loving.
