Skeleton Intro

Really, really rough attempt at thinking about my into….to be continued…. Intro (first draft- ROUGH!!) Description (from proposal..may need to change) My MA thesis is a highly personal and creative endeavor which explores the ways in which memory and mode impact the construction of meaning, the development of truth, and the discovery of one’s self. […]

Not My Intro

If you could have a conversation with a loved one that has passed, what would you say? Better yet, what would they say? I’m not certain this question is at the heart of my thesis, but I like it. It’s something, perhaps, I could ask myself about my grandmother, too. She died when I was […]

Conversations with My Father

So, after a list of about 15-20 “working titles,” the one that seems to stick best is simply, “Conversations with My Father.”  Perhaps a subtitle is in order, too, but it’s how I find myself referring to my project in my mind.  That’s what it is, in a nutshell.  I like the simplicity of the […]

in and out.

I am kind of stagnant right now and I don’t like it. I feel like I don’t know how to get myself situated again amidst everything that has been going on. It sucks that my time can’t be dedicated to thesis work alone as I still have to adhere to requirements for elective courses. I […]

Nostalgia

Progress….. OER 18 proposal has been submitted.  Check! Proposal (Final 250 words) Registered for Spring Thesis Seminar….last class for my thesis completion!!!  Check! This Thanksgiving was particularly nostalgic for me.  I got lost in hours of home videos.  For my own ease of reference, I’ve linked them below.  I realize I often make comments about […]

Scalar

Scalar is a curious little program.  There are some cool features such as the “choose your path option,” but it took a long time for me to get the hang of it and I hit a few roadblocks which, thankfully I was able to around (eventually).  The site doesn’t allow large images so I ended up using […]

put down your cigarette rag

I wanted to reread “Kaddish” today, and then when I finished, I wanted to hear it read by Allen himself. I know I’ve heard a recording of it before by him, but the one I was listening to just wasn’t doing it a lot of justice. I have it in the back of my mind …

Dad’s Memorial Speech

I dug up the speech I wrote for my dad’s memorial service.  That day – many years ago – I read it from scribbled notes.  Today, I decided to type the speech as something I could share with my dad in an email, perhaps.  I wonder (even now) what he would think about how I portrayed […]

poem for allen

Last Wednesday, Dr. Rich (the professor kinda sorta related to good old Allen) handed me a piece of paper before class started. He said it was a poem he had written a number of years ago, and he had more or less forgotten about it until our conversation had triggered the memory of it. Dr. …

What is Real

This Sunday I spent more hours than I would like to admit working on my thesis. I had been thinking about what type of online presence, if any, I might like my thesis to inhabit. I’m not necessarily convinced of the need to incorporating a true “multimedia” (audio, video, etc.) version of my project but […]
