What I learned form Isabella

Before

you surrender your sole if you allow someone to exert there authority over you

After

If you allow someone to exert there authority over you it can be helpful with positive results

Feelings just float in the air

Inspired by and dedicated to

Paul from Burnaby Mental Health

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Feelings you say,

Can just float in the air

Even though they exists

We pretend they’re not there

Feelings you say,

Help us rise up to wonders

From laughing out aloud

To howling like thunder

Feelings you say,

That we choose to ignore

Can tear us apart

And hurt us much more

Feelings you say,

Get mixed up with pride

Tangled with sensitivity

“Who would not want to hide”?

Feelings you say,

Come straight from the heart

They define our compassion

And set us apart

Feelings you say,

Shared a bit at a time

With respect and attention

Can be put behind

Feelings you say,

Can just float in the air

If I tell them to you

I know you will care

RIP Do not worry moma

The flowers are gone but the vase is still there

Along side the cards of love and care

The vase is empty but the ribbon is still there

Now it shimmers and shines as it ties back my hair

My heart is broken but it is still bursting with pride

As my friends gather around me and stand by my side

I have a secret that I am ready to tell it is about people like me that do not read very well

“alternative learner” to replace “learning disabled”

“Rosa’s Law,” which changes references in many Federal statutes those currently refer to “mental retardation” to refer, instead, to “intellectual disability”

Alternative Learner

The IAAL has requested that the BC Ministry of Education adopt a new description for people with an alternative way of learning and considers the terms “allotrilexic” or “alternative learner” to replace “learning disabled”.

Learning Disabled

When I had a learning disability I could not read, now that I understand that I have an alternative way of learning I can read.  I just do it in a different way and in my experience different is not wrong or a disability.

BC Politics and Education

A poem by Tina H. McInerney

Oil and water?

It is a task for me to write
But I did it anyway
Waiting waiting, waiting
Just to hear what she would say

Christy Clark’s answer
Was a big word for me
Returned in a form letter
Was pronounced Autonomy
Politely translated
Please pass to the school the responsibility

It is a task for me to write
But I did it anyway
Waiting waiting, waiting
Just to hear what she would say

Shirley Bond smiled for my camera
Promised we would meet
At a rainy raise-a-reader
Down town on the street

She said call
So I did again and again
But it all went in the toilet
With a new leader change

It is a task for me to write
But I did it anyway
Waiting waiting, waiting
Just to hear what she would say

Margaret McDermott was all fixed to reason
Then Campbell lost the plot
Declaring it A Season

It is a task for me to write
But I did it anyway
Waiting waiting, waiting
Just to hear what he will say

Now I wait to hear from George Abbott
To see if he will listen to what I have to say
The Next thing you know
It will be Election Day

Waiting waiting, waiting
Just to hear what he will say
