OK, so most of you know that i have spent the last two years working to get a sim on the teen grid for my school.  With my superintendent's blessing (so I was told) I began training my teachers.  Like all other districts, we are financially strapped this year.  District support isn't an option.  Fortunately, I am getting very good at grant writing.  Then - BAM - deadline due for the grant tomorrow - and i can't get it approved to send - by the tech director who doesn't understand this technology.  WTF???????  frustration - anger- and a resignation that even the best technology resources will never reach their full potential.  So I am done.  Sarah (my teacher alt) is no longer needed.  So now...time to focus on what matters - one less thing on my plate, right?

Which Way Did I Go?

Wild thoughts racing through my head.  Stay, go, why am I here, where can i go?  How are you today?  I don't know. I can't tell where I am.  Up? Down? Both?  I'm definitely not in the middle.  Who needs me?  Who do I need?  Losing track of time, of stuff, of where the balance is.  It wasn't expected to last, the peace.  Guess i got a good stretch between.  Better than nothing.  Sleep comes to me now, thats good.  Lost in my other world, this one lets me go.  Floating, not grounded. Will you love me anyway?

When I had no wings to fly.....
