Quirky Scholar,

I find this corner of the realm calming. I also found honey granolas delicious. Caverns. How many we've passed by ( huge signs advertisting caves) I am not sure when my family drove to New York from Oklahoma.

Do tell what you teach!

Are Motorcycles enviromentally friendly?

Hi Anomaly,

As for your time in Japan as a monk...was it through Antioch College's program? I've heard many good things about it.

I have been incredibly fortunate, far more than I could deserve, in being accepted into the graduate program and in finding the teachers that I have. It's not perfect but we have many good profs, including a scholar of the Kyoto School who may be my mentor.

I'm getting by, but it is time consuming. I have many bad habits that don't make it any easier (especially procrastination). I find that its hard to have a life outside of school (though I try).

The ultimate factor that chose my graduate program for me was the financial aid/scholarship I was offered and its location and accessibility (about an hour by train from the house.)

I love school, the intellectual stimulation it brings and the diversity of viewpoints I've encountered. I would not want to give up my graduate studies if I can help it.

An MFA sounds like a wonderful thing! I'd love to write someday, but my goal is quite parochial - to write for the ghetto known as Doctor Who fandom.

TESOL et al. is in great demand and it is a very honorable thing to do.

Steve

Hi Anomaly,

What kind of Aikido do you study? I briefly trained in Kokikai while in highschool, but then all the Aikido dojos seemed to have disappeared, only to be replaced by Karate or Taekwondo schools.

Now a silly question - do you know of any movies or videos that present Aikido in a fair way? I'm not particularly interested in action movies or Steven Segal flicks. I teach world religions at the undergraduate level, and would like to show my students something that links Aikido and Zen, but actually shows Aikido in some depth. I might have them read Takuan's writing on the unfettered mind; it relates to Kendo very well.

Wow...you like Starblazers and Robotech too. Have you seen the newest RT 'movie' - the Shadow Chronicles? I haven't, but supposedly Mark Hamill (sp?) did one of the voices in it.
