thanks for the space
3 June 2005 | by ktanztSee all my reviews

Miss Penelope has a unique way of reminding us of where our existence lies in this universe and is perhaps misjudged because of her harshness toward her students. I thoroughly enjoyed the use of 'Red Light...Green Light' in the text. I think it adds a certain element of childhood elementary dialog to the story that would otherwise be ignored. Thank you for reminding us of why we move in the first place. I wish I could engage people on a day to day basis the way Miss Penelope does. Sometimes I want to throw moderately soft objects at people who do not realize the space they are wasting by not using it or subsequently, to Miss Penelope's standard,using too much of it... I think it is important to remind people, if they don't plan to use their space wisely, Please... oh oh Please use it less...By this most would think that I am speaking of air... Yes... I am.... If you don't plan to use what you have been given then why use it at all. Practice Stillness. If you aren't worthy then practice being unworthy. What's the difference?? At least you have decided on a purpose. If you cannot decide at least why you are here then what right do you have to waste the time of others who know. Thanks so much for your time. I never expected to take up this much room... I only thought I was taking a deep breath....Perhaps I was taking up the space of all those folks who have nothing to say or perhaps too much... Either way, I have made my point clear and am looking forward to a pickle in the face.
