How I (Seamus) Spent My Summer Vacation

My dear godson Seamus Morrison, son of my brother-from-another-mother James, spent his summer in a very unique way. I'm pleased to share that he's taken up his piano lessons again, that he attends his wonderful independent school half-day or more as he's taking up the rest of his therapy, and that he is a hero of mine. We can all learn from the powerpoint he created to share...

Like everything else Seamus has touched, both before and during this journey, this is a beautiful, personal and honest revelation of the remarkable nature of his being. Seamus, James, Riad and Scott -- thank you all for sharing.

Scott, bless you and bless Seamus for sharing this story. My deepest hope is for his continued recovery and for your continued presence in our lives.
What an educator! I am passing this onto folks who need a dose of courage. Thank you Seamus! It is a masterpiece. xoxox

I am so sorry that he had to spend his summer vacation this way!
But it's so admirable of him, just how well he handled everything and how confident he is. That will surely make him a surviver of a very special kind! Not many people have got this much courage and dare to look at things that aren't too pleasant.

I know a lady who, when she was very young, also had a brain tumor and that is now many years ago and it's amazing just how well she has recovered! Mind you, she's even had two children since then!

I have been into alternative treatments for many years, basically because at some point my children also got very ill and there was no other help to get...
And some of the books I found were most interesting.
F.ex. Hulda Redgehr Clark's books. "The Cure for All Cancers" and "The Cure for All Advanced Cancers" show some quite amazing case stories.

Something else I used with great success was "Natural Hygiene", a natural de-tox where one basically lives of raw fruit and veggies.

And re cancer I also think, that vitamins do play an important role. Dr. Matthias Rath has devellopped some interesting combinations.

All my best wishes for Seamus and his parents and my admiration for handling this so well and for supporting their son so much!

Periscoping a Fall Walk across Nashville's Pedestrian Bridge

On my final day of Fall Break, which I spent mostly knocking out home-focused honey-do items (though I did get to Marrowbone Lake for one morning of fishing), I decided to take a walk over the John L. Seigenthaler Memorial Bridge. I had never done it before! My goal was to take a 360 panorama for my little side project, Nashville360VR, which has been suffering lately from my dedication to my new job at Warner Enhanced Elementary School. I did that, and on a whim I Periscoped it. Here's the video of that which I saved locally. Folks popped in and out--I don't think I had more than 20 or so concurrent viewers, but all in all I received 251 peeks over the 13 or so minutes or so of the 'cast. You won't see chat or comments (or hearts :), but you can view the video. Here:

Thanks to 'scopers for dropping in. And thanks to the powers-that-be for such a gorgeous Friday afternoon!

Here are a couple normal "pano" shots I took on my iPhone:



That is all. Oh...

THE BEST ISTE EVER: Day 4 Reflections

I'll get a start on it. Day 4 was the bomb. Here's the "moneyshot" again  to prove it:

Tuesday morning I actually slept in until 7:30, had a good workout, and dressed smartly for my photo shoot at 11:20. I'd been asked by ISTE to be a poser and you know me, I couldn't resist. But that did mean I was in slacks and had to haul my blue blazer around all day. That's okay though, I look forward to recognizing myself in some upcoming issue of Learning and Leading with Technology. If you check out last month's issue you'll see Andy Wheelock's personable self gracing the inside front cover--like that. You should also catch Andy's article from the May L&LT: http://www.learningandleading-digital.com/learning_leading/201205?pg=5#pg28

I actually had a sit  down breakfast at the Hilton's Riverwalk restaurant, and the breakfast wrap was good but I never had a coffee refill and no one actually checked in with me at any time. I had to flag down a …

The Dreamers Exhibit in Second Life

Wow. I had a fantastic hour early this morning while my lovely was sleeping and the canine brutes were resting in front of the fireplace. Lured by the login page's description, I tp'd over to the site, which promised a celebration of peace in the face of violence. 
The description of the project begins:
Because violence will not take away our ability to dream!
When we were just beginning to create this project, the events of Charlottesville happened. Our hearts stopped. We cannot do this - we thought - we must alert to the political situation we live in! The danger of tyranny. The danger of environmental disaster. The danger of xenophobia, sexism, homophobia. The danger of hate! But then we stopped.From within us came this beach, this horizon. This sea, this lake, these white clouds grew. No! We will not give up on The Dreamers. We will not give up on beauty. They will not steal the beauty of the world. They will not steal tenderness. They will not steal the life we have left.A…
