March is over, and with it the “Winds’ project. We had 30 entries this month from 29 different contributors. It proved a fascinating array of conversations on different aspects of winds — real to metaphorical. None made the Main Feed this month, but that is okay.  The maximum number of comments generated by any of our windy topics […]

I have loved using Scholastic News in my classroom. I’ve also taught with The Weekly Reader, or Time for Kids. However, in the last five or six years, I’ve increasingly found myself reading the cover article, and then putting the entire packet of magazines into the recycling bin. Why? Indoctrination, PC, Science-y Nonsense… The latest […]

I cruise through life content most of the time. Occasionally, though, a peculiar convergence of sunshine, azure sky, gentle breeze, and felicitous song will deepen that outlook. For a few savory minutes, the contentedness mellows into a sense of serene pleasure. All the parts of my world have blended into a lovely tune.  This happy confluence of elements occurred more than […]

How do the family stories even get started? I’m a Southerner, no matter where I was born and raised. My father’s family landed in Virginia before the Lees. Our particular patriline dipped south of the border into North Carolina after a few generations and then a few generations later started moving westward. Our forefathers went […]

The theme for March is Wind. Anything to do with wind. Pretty broad topic, I thought. Maybe I was wrong because we still have four openings with February sweeping to an end.  We need four stout-hearted Ricochetti to step up and take one of the days. It is not hard, honest. Pick something to do […]

February is slipping away, and openings remain in our March writing project: Wind. There are four day until we open the new month, and we have eight slots unfilled – over a week’s worth. Are there going to be windswept gaps this month? Are some days going to be dust in the wind? Will the […]

Gone With the Wind? It will be if you do not act soon. Our March series has wind as its theme. Anything to do with wind. Even novels or movies with the word wind in the title (Inherit the Wind or Sharknado). Or an experience with wind. Or wind phenomena. Anything. This is your chance to […]

Yep. We have another Group Writing series scheduled in March. The theme is Wind – anything to do with wind. A personal experience with wind. Something meteorologically related to wind. The cosmic wind. Breaking wind (although someone has taken that one). Windy speakers. Breezy writing styles. Wind-based sports and hobbies. Anything. Except – our goal is […]

The Answer is Blowin’ in the Wind. Yep. We put out a call for volunteers for Group Writing’s March Series – Wind – earlier this week. So how many openings do we still have? Too many. Each month we seek out Ricochetti to post a conversation on a common theme. In March the theme is wind. […]

FILLED! March approaches. This means it is time to organizes another monthly theme-based writing project. Since March is about wind I have arbitrarily decided that will be the March theme. Write something about wind. It can be about March wind, or ocean winds, or solar wind. Windy speakers or windy cities. The summer wind that came blowing in from across the […]

I’ve had a very fortunate life, so I have very little wisdom to impart on luck.   And so many good things I’ve experienced were through no particular personal merit.  So I was struggling for ideas – nothing but boring good luck. Until my Mum’s 88th birthday, on Monday.  Sitting at her table, talking with Mum, Dad and […]
