  An illustrated story made for my grandmother on her 90th birthday. ''Colin comes to live with Blue the cat, but is lazy about opening the door for Blue, until one day . . .''

Document Reading Response: Thoreau Document 2006-02-03 2007-10-05 2005-09-13
  Thoreau's success as a teacher comes both from satirizing effectively the kinds of values that lead people away from finding the divine in the everyday and in his presentation of the quality of life thereby lost. He has created a spiritual text that we can meditate on to help us stay focused on living deeply.

Document Enduring Values in _Death of a Salesman_ Document 2006-02-05 2006-02-14 2005-11-01
  While the failure of the Lomans to prosper is partly an indictment of their way of life, below the surface of failure appear values that could help the Lomans to thrive. Miller states that his play depicts an absence of values, thereby provoking the audience to consider what the Loman family is missing. However, enduring principles are in fact modeled in _Salesman_.

Document Brainstorms on Earthfair, and on A larger vision of what our group could be Document 2006-02-11 2006-02-12 2006-02-05
  This was a post to the San Diego Ishmael yahoo group. The most memorable thought in here may be, ". . . what is more important than the relationship then, than _any_ relationship, is the community in which it occurs." This relates to a comment I made in an earlier paper, "In this tradition, which is founded upon belief in the independence and self-reliance of the individual, it is individual success, not community or family visioning, planning, and development, that is the means of resolving the problems of life." How can we raise a community culture in the manner others attempt to raise themselves or their relationships? Currently, for many people, work and church may provide their "patterns for living" (Clyde Kluckhohn). Can we make our own? What are the needs a successful pattern for living must address?

Document Dickinson, Whitman, and Possibility Document 2006-02-12 2008-03-05 2005-12-06
  To be God-like is to create. Creating can be facilitated by discipline. Dickinson suggests that discipline consists in protecting and cultivating one's passion in a world that tends to impose shame. The fortunate live in communities which value prophets who model discipline that facilitates the passion of creating. Those even more fortunate also have poets who help them, like Dickinson, first to know passion, then to develop their own discipline to protect their passion and help it grow. From Whitman I want to learn how a man does something radically new, that others value. I may be less likely to learn from the professors than from Whitman how to create a role, a life, an anything, that has not been seen before, and is valued.

  This letter to the editor was published in the San Diego Union Tribune on Saturday, March 25, 2006. It incorporates in few words elements of the argument for carfree living and planning, and may be somewhat rhetorically effective? You tell me.

Document A Pedagogy of the Distracted, a Rhetoric of Agendas: Helping Students Get into Writing in spite of--or by Working with--Distractions Document 2006-09-02 2006-09-02 2006-09-02
  Students can be helped to focus on their writing by encouraging them: to write and keep writing without erasing; to use writing about distraction as a way into writing; to view writing as a transgressive act; to consider the agendas leading to the existence of the classroom community and to the writing they do for the course; and to develop and use their own agendas as a way into writing. I model these approaches in the composition of this text and in my thoughts about how to integrate within the composition course my agendas to help students become both: (1) better writers and readers and (2) leaders who develop leaders, who see their individual growth as dependent upon the growth of the others in their communities.

  The Walking Sangha I am a part of in Los Padres National Forest supports walkers heading to Quail Springs Permaculture Farm and to other sites between there and Ojai and Santa Barbara. We make our life in the forest itself a practice, keeping time for silence, for trail work or walking, and for sharing. We also help Quail Springs care for their land and community. At least two thirds of our time is spent in roadless areas.
