I won’t bore you with the details (and good grief – they are seemingly endless!), but let me tell you that I have lost nearly all faith in Portland Public Schools. I am a huge proponent of public education, and it pains me to see the bureaucrats at PPS dig their own grave. And, they do it constantly, one shovel of dirt after another… Sadly, their actions never really reflect the best interest of kids.
Most of my evening was pissed away on social media – reading, comparing, calculating, scheming, questioning, wondering, and piecing together the various ins and outs of this latest proposed travesty. The phone photo I had planned to use for my Vignette didn’t at all reflect the calamity of my emotions, but I figured I’d post it anyway, so I imported it into my computer. I had wanted to edit the spider out, and only focus on the backlit geometries of the two webs, but sometimes Photos doesn’t let me edit phone photos – it turns them into these tiled, faceted things that make no sense. Then, suddenly it struck me. This tiled, messed up thing was a perfect representation of what is currently going on. Perfectly nonsensical. So here you go – a perfect mess!
