Well, I have been busy, working on taxes, trying to get my CDs back into "print" and working full time at a small private school. All I can say is "mad props and serious kudos" to real* classroom teachers. The amount of work, care and creativity that goes into this vocation( it surely isn't just a job!) is astounding.
So, with this dearth of free time I took a notion to make a podcast.
Why? I just do not know. My ADD gets worse as I get older.
Anyway podcast Vol. 2.#1 includes the legend of the King of Denmark. In it I read Carmen Deedy's beautiful telling of the story and tell some other true stories of bravery and creativity. See more about Carmen Deedy at: carmendeedy.com
I found out about David Shepherd and Travis Price while searching the internet for information about King Christian and other social issues. David and Travis are high school seniors at Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia They did a simple thing. They stood up for a fellow student and acted with courage and creativity.
