Grace... and form.

Yesterday one of my students made a near perfect candle stick (if perfection is measured on the basis of finish and form.) The amount of pride he felt was amazing to observe. While a more experienced turner might have been able to do it faster and more efficiently, there is something palpable in the excitement of having reached one's goal.

While many parents wonder what their children do in school, mine go home with evidence of their growth.

Our struggle with utility giant AEP/SWEPCO goes on. They submitted a letter to the APSC denying that we had any right to ask for financial compensation for damages or legal fees, even though we saved ratepayers in Arkansas more than half a billion dollars on an unnecessary power line, and even though we have proved  that the power line was never needed in the first place.

Make, fix and create...
