 What You Can Do When You Criticize Yourself for Earlier Parenting?

By Suzanne E. Harrill

I laugh sometimes at the healing process that continues in my life. As a weekly assignment in a self-discovery class I am enrolled in, I learned I am to journal write about my inner experiences each week. I sat there with deep feelings of satisfaction for my life and thinking, "My life is great right now. I am so grateful for all the wonderful inner work I have done over the years."

I was wondering what I would write about as I was not feeling any motivation. I have spent many hours over the years journaling, which helped me heal and process my beliefs and feelings. I normally write when something is troubling me. At this stage in my life, I am enjoying that I can usually get to the bottom of things quickly now without writing. So when I sent the thought out, "I wonder what I will write about this week?" I had to smile when I answered my phone the next day...

Did you know that almost one third of our public high school students fail to graduate? Young Americans who drop out of school have little hope for a decent future. Without a high school diploma, they're far more likely than their peers to be unemployed, live in poverty, suffer from poor health, become dependent on social services, and go to jail. Half of all prison inmates are dropouts. Can we turn around this tragic waste of young lives with the right help at the right time?

In his compelling new book, THE LAST DROPOUT: STOP THE EPIDEMIC! Bill Milliken offers hope for a brighter future. Bill, founder of Communities In Schools (CIS), the nation's leading community-based organization for helping kids stay in school, reveals the enormous cost to American society from our failure to give kids the things they need to stay the course and graduate.

Personal Growth


By Gary Zukav

When I lived in the city, I never knew what an equinox was. It is an astronomical term for the time when the sun crosses the equator, making night and day of equal length in all parts of the world. In December, the sun is lowest in the sky and the nights are longest. This is the winter solstice. In June, the opposite happens, the sun is highest in the sky and the days are longest. This is the summer solstice. All of this has to do with the equinoxes, but I didnít learn any of it by studying astronomy.

I was forty-five when I moved onto a remote ranch in the pine and fir of northern California. I lived alone. The nearest town was fifteen miles away. I had no electricity or phone. When I returned from infrequent trips, I would get out of my car and stand still for several minutes, listening to the sounds of the evening, and of the stream behind the house. When I walked toward the house, the noise of my boots on the cinder seemed so loud that it startled me.

Twenty-five years ago I received a touching gift from my high school creative writing teacher, Mary Boyle. Believe it or not, she saved three of my poems. I can see now that there was a deeper potential for writing that this fine teacher recognized. It was not until the age of 35 when I received the poems that I could appreciate them. Nothing else written at this stage in my life was saved. I share them with you now "Selections," along with my teacherís endearing comments. Enjoy.
