all the pennies i passed on the street today were face down. someone told me once that face down pennies are bad luck, so i walked quickly past. the last thing i need today is more bad luck that i could have avoided.

speaking of luck-- good...bad...or whatever crosses your path, check out the 'chantal the black cat' poem that one of my 4th grade students wrote! i posted it just an hour or two ago, while sitting in the car after a very unlucky day-- the unluckiest really-- getting the last drops of my laptop battery and stretching the wireless from the closed cafe to my parking spot. her playful poem is here on my words and photo booth moments blog
