The poem of the week is late this week but I'm going to pretend that it was on purpose because today is the first day of poetry month. I chose one of my favorite poems for this week instead of searching for a new one because it's Hell Week and I'm very busy. I'm so stressed that I've crossed back over into happy.

Also I'm at a place in my life where spending an hour testing the aerodynamics of foam potatoes is just another Tuesday.

A PRAYER FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
by John Marsden

May the road be free for the journey,
May it lead where it promised it would.
May the stars that gave ancient bearings
Be seen and be understood:
May every aircraft fly safely;
May every traveler be found;
May sailors in crossing the seas,
Not hear the cries of the drowned.

May gardens be wild like jungles,
May nature never be tamed.
May dangers create of us heroes,
May fears always have names.
May the mountains stand to remind us
Of what it means to be young;
May we be outlived by our daughters,
May we be outlived by our sons.

May the bombs rust away in the bunkers,
And the doomsday clock be rewound;
May the solitary scientists, working,
Remember the holes in the ground.
May the knife remain in the holder,
May the bullet stay in the gun,
May those who live in the shadows
Be seen by those in the sun.

 Two articles I liked this week. I have more but right now I have to get back to my lesson planning. 

One about a suicidal teenager who's mother began to leave her poetry and one about Indian food

 I'm nearly finished with second holiday card design but I'm taking a break this for the next couple of days to work on two other art projects (Christmas ornaments and my piece of Marvel Bang which I still need to color) and prepare for NaNoWriMo. I'm more determined than ever to finish this year but I don't want it to be at the expense of everything else. 

Links I'm Reading include:

Pacemaker which is a customizable target word count generator. I'm really excite because it allows me to schedule for writing more at the start of the month and less on the weekends. Plus it even lets me include a two day grace period. 

This Shel Silverstein poem because I'm trying to show my little brother that poetry can be fun

This blog post about electrolytic etching because I'm planning on trying it once the holiday rush blows over
 
A list of 15 "kid-requested" meals from Pillsbury because while I'm not usually much of a Pillsbury girl, it's my night to cook again and clueless vegetarian me whose favorite pre-vegetarian meal was calamari has a hard time pleasing the elementary schoolers of the home unless I'm making fried rice or desert.
