Let this month’s issue inspire parents and grandparents to encourage their children and grandchildren to get out and play the old-fashioned way.

Attached, there is a quick and easy guide for children to find fun games to play, have a nice read!

December 25, 2009 Leave a comment

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the Christmas story competition. You made it very hard for the judges to reach a veredict. However, in the end they made a choice based upon originality as well as quality of language and narrative style. And the winner was…Jordi Bermejo with an accomplished story with echoes of The Sopranos.

Happy reading!

Comparisons…what else?

December 18, 2009 Leave a comment

Check your work in this month’s issue, comparisons… what else?

However, comparing Yourself to others is not wise.

We continually wonder, “How am I doing; am I good enough?” How else can we answer the question but to look around and see how others are doing? Others are our reference points and we compare. Compared to others, how do we rate on looks, intelligence, personality, income, accomplishment? School provides excellent training in comparing. Our test results and grades were on the “curve.” our success or failure depended on how well others did. In school the focus was not progress, but comparison.

We all tend to use a vertical scale where others are either above or below us. Those above remind us of our own inferiority and we react with envy or fear.  On the other hand, those we deem below us generate a spark of slippery superiority and more than a pinch of pride.

Yet it is said it is not wise, Geneticists tell us no one has ever had a duplicate of our genes. Sociologists tell us no one has a duplicate of our experience.  How can one compare if each one  isunique, matchless? How can the incomparable be compared?
