    After some relative quiet, there was a significant solar radio burst yesterday:

    http://spaceweather.com/images2013/03feb13/type3.mp3?PHPSESSID=jht37o9hqpt3nhiupmpdpqisk0

    The static, along with the short wave radio jumble is enough to stir me up a bit.

    No, I don't work in the field of meteorology. I'm a student and a teacher. I simply find what's up in the sky overwhelmingly fascinating.

    Actually I "teach" as a director of an after school program for about 75 children ranging in age from five to eighteen years. I spend a third of my time tutoring, a third counseling, and another third creating and coordinating the program. I'm not yet certified as a public school teacher, so at age 50, I've returned to the university setting so that I might be "deemed" credible. "My kids" don't care about any of that, though...to them I'm counselor, teacher, mentor and "mom." 😀

    I'm having the time of my life!

    *edit: When I do finally get certified, I will be able to teach middle school (grades 6-8) Language Arts and Social Studies. I want to focus my efforts in this area on Peace Education and Conflict Resolution.

    The name Hakima was given to me as an adult...when I became wise enough to knowthat I wasn't. 😉

    You're a serious person and, obviously, enjoy reading and intellectual games.

    Not wise, who among us is...

    Sometimes I'm serious...sometimes not...half my day, as a fulltime student is spent in serious study...half of it, among 75 kids each afternoon is spent utilizing my sense of humor. I'm no spring chicken either...so experience has taught me to try to keep some balance...enlivenment as much as enlightenment...

    I feel that way during the approach of Autumn. The approach of Spring is slightly uplifting as grey gives way to green... but here in Texas we get about 2 weeks of Spring and then jump to the 90s and 100s for the next 7 months. So overall, the approach of Spring is rather depressing.

    Tree at my Window

    Tree at my window, window tree,
    My sash is lowered when night comes on;
    But let there never be curtain drawn
    Between you and me.

    Vague dream head lifted out of the ground,
    And thing next most diffuse to cloud,
    Not all your light tongues talking aloud
    Could be profound.

    But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed,
    And if you have seen me when I slept,
    You have seen me when I was taken and swept
    And all but lost.

    That day she put our heads together,
    Fate had her imagination about her,
    Your head so much concerned with outer,
    Mine with inner, weather.
