Good stuff. Talk like that feeds my soul.

Beautiful post


Answers to questions like, "What do you need to feel your soul?" is precisely why I love teenagers. Sometimes they surprise us! As for me? Sweet potatoes feed my soul. Poetry feeds my soul. Dance feeds my soul.

I think I'll ask my students today what feeds their souls- a great journal entry, especially since we're reading "Brave New World", a book about a society where "feeding the soul" is heresy.

Thanks for the idea. Thanks for the posting.

Great way to take advantage of a teachable moment!


This anecdote makes me happy! Thanks for sharing!


I just love all your stories! I will definitely link to you as soon as I figure out how to do that on my blog! I teach Health/PE/Driver Ed and recently started a blog about all my fun adventures teaching Health class this year. Oh yeah, I'm a redhead too :) Keep up the great entries!

Studying Transcendentalism, I asked my American Lit class what they needed in life to feed their souls. After a few broad, not-quite-there responses, Chances, the son of my favorite custodian, grinned broadly and yelled out, "HOT WINGS!" I'm pretty sure he was kidding around.

I started saying some stuff about feeding your soul, not your body, and talking again about needs versus wants, but then, suddenly, I stopped myself.

Hot wings don't feed my soul (a good, vegetarian soul btw), but maybe, in a way, hot wings feed his soul. I opened the discussion to the class. We talked about how food could be tied to cultural identity. We talked about the term "soul food." And in the end, we decided.
