The wisdom of cowardice



applejudgeThere is one aspect of my job that really annoys me: rules. As a teacher I have to make sure that my students give the due respect to the place and the people they interact with every single day. There is nothing wrong, I know, however in recent times, fewer and fewer families seem to be aware of the fact that teachers and parents share one great goal: the success of their children. We should co-operate for their “Bildung”, the making of their personalities as future men and women, even teaching them the importance and the necessity of following rules, rather than being considered the enemies that crush the image that a parent has of his child.

The Boy Who Cried ‘Wolf’

Don Charisma

There was a boy tending the sheep who would continually go up to the embankment and shout, ‘Help, there’s a wolf!’ The farmers would all come running only to find out that what the boy said was not true. Then one day there really was a wolf but when the boy shouted, they didn’t believe him and no one came to his aid. The whole flock was eaten by the wolf.

My Favourites?

Frankly, I like them all, but I think what resonates most with me would be 2, 3, 4 and 6. With no.6 I used to think one had to have all the answers, then I grew up and realized that you didn’t. The journey is as important as the destination….plus you might not even get there!

Your Favourite(s)?

Torrent of Stillness


Torrent of Stillness

Silence pours into my mind
Like a Spring Flood,

Deluge of Nothingness,

Torrent of Stillness,

Shaking my Resolve to the Core,

Washing away the madness of my Thoughts,

Stripping my Excuses away in the Brazen Rush
Until All that Remains is










And Focus on You
