you can never have too much sky

You all see that cloud, that fat one there? Darius said, See that? Where? That one next to the one that look like popcorn. That one there. See that. That's God, Darius said. God? somebody little asked. God, he said, and made it simple. -Cisneros

These videos have been going around the school and my kids are pretty stoked about ‘em.

This video was created by some kids at Grayson HS:

Brookwood, Where You At?

"I see a lot of talkers but I hear no voices/Welcome to a world where rams eat horses/Grayson is the one and we are the one and only/Oh, these dudes are Broncos? I thought they were ponies/Now let us keep in mind it’s not just about the scores/cause even our cheerleaders look better than yours."
