1. you will enjoy reading; 2. students will enjoy writing; 3. students will enjoy reading what others in the class have written 4. you will enjoy writing.

This entry is about as personal as an entry can get. My dog, Ali, died today. He had cancer. I loved him more than anything. I have marveled at inter-species love. Actually, I marvel at love. I would have climbed up on the cross for Ali. I can't sleep tonight, because all I can do is think of kissing him good-bye and telling him I loved him.
