Diva Musing:

We were blessed to have an amazing writer and poet lecture to our classes yesterday and I was both pleased and surprised to see as many students volunteer to attend as we had.  From eighth graders to seniors they were polite and attentive.  It also shocked me to see how many youngsters do not have a concept or interest in good writing skills and literature (the fine arts in general).  I think we all learned a lot.  
Our youth seem to be structured to only have an interest in the all knowing, all seeing internet.  Yeah, that cultural vacuum is their god of knowledge!  Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the wealth of information now available to us at the touch of a few buttons.  My Masters thesis was much easier because I could research from anywhere.  However, I also discern that it is not the be all, end all of knowledge.  It is frightening how many of our youth are mesmerized with the world wide web as their vision of the world.  
Parents please encourage them to read a book, take a nature walk in the wood, hold a media free discussion group, and even bake home made cookies and hot cocoa to go with it.  Let’s get our children back to the basics.  A good balance of media and real world thinking and education will keep our future safe and much more interesting.  

Namaste, The Queen Cronista….
