School, that's a thought. At 16 I moved to Astoria Oregon to get my degree in child psych & preschool teaching. Teach them when they're young. So they don't grow up unhinged. Came home to calif. They said that degree is not good here :( Ya, that poem " Echoes Out Of Time" is/ was not my parents at all. I never told them. And the " Fireflies " poem was not my mother either. And for sure not me :)

I do like that you write about all sorts of things not related directly to you, but based on things that you sense somehow. That is really wonderful. So how did you resolve the issue of certification in different states?

and to add to the pain, there is no job in sight!! My son has been interviewing for a lawyer position for two years now. He has a job as an assistant DA in a small town, but the salary is peanuts compared to what he needs to get out of debt. These are such hard times. I enjoyed this poem, Duke.

Hopefully, he is doing better now. It's a tough game to play. I have a lot of respect for a lawyer who is principled as I am sure he is.
