    Very cool 😐 i’m very excited about this!! haven’t really started reading, but already found and bookmarked the Prologue you talk about here. Last year in my university, i took this note from a book:

    ” Quetzal :

    Central American climbing bird, that dies when deprived of liberty; root and origin of Quetzalcoatl (feathered serpent with quetzal feathers), god of the Toltecs, whose soul, according to legend, would have ascended to heaven in the form of the Morning Star.”

    (it was in portuguese – translated it )

    The interesting thing, is that it was printed on Aristotle’s nicomachean ethics book
    on a spare page, because the publishers are named “Quetzal Editores” – Lisbon

    thought i should tell you this! hope you find it usefull heh
    anyways, thanks for your comment! also, critics are very welcome any time!
    peace and good luck on you’re writings

    • Wow, we are definitely having a moment of synchronicity here! I’m taking this as an omen 🙂 because I have linked the Greek myth of Castor & Pollux with the twins Hunahpu & Xbalanque in my writing. As for Quetzalcoatl, if one uses the Quiche language, the name means “precious twin.” There were a lot of words with variant meanings, so I have made use of them when it is logical or reasonable to. Thank you for translating that, it’s so interesting that the bird dies when deprived of liberty. Kind of like us inside, huh? I’ll definitely be heading back to check out more of your writing, I like what I saw! Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll like it and/or give me feedback. Thanks, peace and good luck on your writings too! George

  2. You are my breathing in, I own few web logs and sometimes run out from to brand.

  3. Good evening! I was surfing arround on Bing and came across your blog. I like the articles! I also have a website . Maybe you will visit my website too.

      • Think like a mountain .Another great corinnvatsoeist, Edward Abbey, said: Feel like a river .To these precepts we must now add: Fly like a monarch .Love you all Erik Mollenhauer PS Bob Szuszkowski Your words come from the heart and strike deep. Keep your face to the sun .

    • I participated in the MTN woshrkop and went to Mexico thanks to the generosity of the folks from the G.R. Dodge Foundation. Starting the school-year off in September by raising Monarchs in the classroom is an invaluable experience for students of all ages and levels; with all the cross-curricular activities available, it is a great project-based learning opportunity. I would recommend the MTN woshrkop to all teachers.

  4. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    • Thanks for stopping by.

      • I worked at a chnrdleis science museum many years back and always did a volcano for them!! Actually I would bring one of the choldren up to the front and allow them to add that magic ingredient!!! (and the food coloring as well–oh the colors they came up with)–I loved it–of course that is not all I did–but it was my favorite–by the way–I used to tell the kids to do it IN the kitchen sink or risk death by mother!!!I am one of your new followers!!Michele aka MikiHopewww.mikishope.com

      • I’ve always wanted a volcano!

    • Maren, it is wonderful to revile the Mexico trip with you. I traveled with the Monarch Teacher Network in 2004, and it is still one of the best memories of my life. Thanks for sharing your story and impressions. And thank you to the Geraldine R Dodge Foundation for working with EIRC to educate teachers about the Monarch migration through workshops and trips. You help us to touch the lives of so many children and families.

  5. Oh my goodness! an amazing article dude. Thank you However I’m experiencing situation with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anyone getting similar rss drawback? Anybody who knows kindly respond. Thnkx

  6. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.

  7. Hey, I just hopped over to your web-site through StumbleUpon. Not somthing I might normally read, but I liked your thoughts none the less. Thanks for creating something worthy of browsing.

  8. Im getting a browser error, is anyone else?

  9. Im getting a browser error, is anyone else?

  10. After I start your Rss feed it appears to be to be a lot of garbage, is the issue on my side?

  11. Reading these blogs has renewed my ienertst and excitement regarding the monarchs and Mexican culture. I attended my 1st Monarch Teacher’s Network Conference two years ago and have already signed up for this summer’s workshop. I have raised monarchs in my preschool classroom for over 14 years. Each year, it is my favorite unit and I love to watch the transformation of the monarchs as well as the transformation of my students. It never ceases to amaze me how much my students learn and retain. I hope and pray that someday I am able to make the same journey to Mexico as many of you in order to add to my knowledge and understanding of these beautiful animals and the rich Mexican heritage.

    Thank you 🙂

    MsTranquility

    • Thank you, Ms. Tranquility 🙂
      Just to warn you, I don’t do awards and don’t pass them on, but I let people give them to me so they can get rid of them without stress. I used to get a lot of awards and then I would put off answering and tagging, then I would forget about them and the rest is history. It has nothing to do with the person who gives me the award and everything to do with me being a lazy procrastinator, so please don’t take offense.
      Georgina

      • Thank you for letting me know Georgina 🙂 I’ve only been on here for like a month so I am not used to these awards and didn’t know how people felt about them, lol. I’m sorry, but thank you for letting me know your stance on them. Personally, I don’t think I will be doing them again 🙂

      • No worries! Some people like them, but I started getting all these awards and felt like I had to scramble around to find people to give them to and then my procrastinating powers kicked in and Voila! No stress 🙂 Seriously, though, if it’s something you enjoy participating in, do it. I think it helps some people find new blogs, so it’s good in that way. If not, know that I am always here to accept awards even though I don’t do anything with them 😉

      • I didn’t really know much about them until I started seeing them on people’s blogs. I didn’t want the sweet guy who was nice enough to nominate me to feel bad, so I posted it 🙂

      • I’ve felt that way too, but awards and me don’t mix well 🙂
