Wise Words and Morning Dew

There's more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line. The less I seek my source for some definitive, closer I am to fine.

photolab223 asked: Hi, you have an amazing blog. What would you recommend if i have 2 or 3 days to move from phoenix to interesting places in Arizona? Thanks.

arizonanature:

Hi there, thanks for the compliment. :) Usually when I have out of towners visiting, I take them to the most accessible and popular places to visit in AZ. These include:

  • Sunset Crater/Wupatki
  • Walnut Canyon
  • The Painted Desert/Petrified Forest
  • Sedona (definitely do some hiking, or if that’s a bit intimidating I recommend a jeep tour)
  • Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well (and Tuzigoot, if you have the time)
  • Jerome
  • Lava River Cave
  • Grand Canyon
  • Mogollon Rim (northeast of Payson)
  • Apache Trail
  • Saguaro National Forest
  • Sonoran Desert Museum
  • Tombstone
  • San Xavier del Bac Mission
  • Titan Missile Museum
  • Prescott
  • Bisbee
  • Yuma Territorial Prison
  • Chiricahua 

If anyone can throw in some other suggestions, I’d appreciate it. :)

so I did some research for a presentation in my psych class and I think I should share what I found.

you know that idea that boys are generally a little better at math and science? yeah, that’s not true. at least, that’s what some researchers found when they looked at gender gaps in the scores…

To the boy who called her fat:
Congratulations.
You are dumb enough to regurgitate
the lies your society has taught you.
When you have a daughter,
will you too teach her
she is worth the amount
that her breasts to her waist to her hips
are measured?
Perhaps it is a waste us women
are even educated,
it takes away from our time
at the gym or in the toilet.

To the adult that called her stupid:
She is a product of your hell.
Her brain is sliced open
and ripped to shreds
when she is taught to memorize and speak
rather than learn.
How can she absorb
when men like you insist
she is nothing bigger than her body,
rather than her brain?

To the man who called her a slut:
Have you so quickly forgotten
that you were an active participant?
Whispering in her ear
she is a whore if she does
and a prude if she doesn’t.
Who knows which is worse?
Remember, if she is so soiled
after you have finished,
perhaps you should look at your own hands
rather than her skin.
