Welcome to my meanderings!
One saturday morning I had many tasks and chores running around in my head. I knew each needed to get done during the day, but I had no organization to my thoughts.
I have a list of things to do: go [[grocery shopping]], get [[new sneakers]], and visit the [[library]].
At some point I should fit in some [[exercise]].
Oh, and check my [[blog]] for student comments, too.
What else does the day have in store?
Events can unfold however you choose.

I need to find:
[[Narrative Nonfiction]]Flyboys <center><img src="http://lisavmazey.net/pics/flyboys.jpg" width="100" height="150" alt="Flyboys"></center>
"This acclaimed bestseller brilliantly illuminates a hidden piece of World War II history as it tells the harrowing true story of nine American airmen shot down in the Pacific. One of them, George H. W. Bush, was miraculously rescued. What happened to the other eight remained a secret for almost 60 years.
After the war, the American and Japanese governments conspired to cover up the shocking truth, and not even the families of the airmen were informed of what happened to their sons. Their fate remained a mystery--until now.
FLYBOYS is a tale of courage and daring, of war and death, of men and hope. It will make you proud and it will break your heart." (amazon.com)
1918 Flu <center><img src="http://lisavmazey.net/pics/flu.jpg" width="100" height="150" alt="Flu"></center>
"The fascinating, true story of the world's deadliest disease. In 1918, the Great Flu Epidemic felled the young and healthy virtually overnight. An estimated forty million people died as the epidemic raged. Children were left orphaned and families were devastated. As many American soldiers were killed by the 1918 flu as were killed in battle during World War I. And no area of the globe was safe. Eskimos living in remote outposts in the frozen tundra were sickened and killed by the flu in such numbers that entire villages were wiped out. Scientists have recently rediscovered shards of the flu virus frozen in Alaska and preserved in scraps of tissue in a government warehouse. Gina Kolata, an acclaimed reporter for The New York Times, unravels the mystery of this lethal virus with the high drama of a great adventure story. Delving into the history of the flu and previous epidemics, detailing the science and the latest understanding of this mortal disease, Kolata addresses the prospects for a great epidemic recurring, and, most important, what can be done to prevent it."

Carry Me Home <center><img src="http://lisavmazey.net/pics/carrymehome.jpg" width="100" height="150" alt="Flu"></center>
"The Year of Birmingham, 1963, was a cataclysmic turning point in America's long civil rights struggle. That spring, child demonstrators faced down police dogs and fire hoses in huge nonviolent marches for desegregation. A few months later, Ku Klux Klansmen retaliated by bombing the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church and killing four young black girls. Diane McWhorter, journalist and daughter of a prominent Birmingham family, weaves together police and FBI documents, interviews with black activists and former Klansmen, and personal memories into an extraordinary narrative of the city, the personalities, and the events that brought about America's second emancipation."

Return to [[I Wake up on Saturday Morning]] "A Day in My Life"
By: Lisa V. Mazey
Use this example as a model for the "A Day in the Life" portion of your own Autobiography project. You should focus on the little details and microcausums in your day. It is the little things that bring reality to life - focus on the seemingly insignificant "everyday" ideas to highlight your personality and what is important to you.
Notice that I have written short sentences in a non-paragraph format. I encourage you to list ideas like that, but you may narrate with paragraphs. I, as a reader, will be looking at how well you draw me into your world.

Sometimes they are better than my playlist. Yeats' Grave is my favorite.
