ANNE'S RAVES and HOWLS

anne07.jpg.jpg

At times, I will use this space to tell you about videos or events or people that I am concerned about, for or with.  I will not post indiscriminately; I will post because I want my fellow human beings to be aware of my concerns.  This video is titled " She's Alive... Beautiful... Finite... Hurting... Worth Dying for "  TO SEE THE VIDEO, CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW:

Welcome! 
 
 
I'm  Anne Morin,
 
from Portland, Oregon, USA. 
This site describes me, who I am, and some of the things I'm into, for pleasure and/or for treasure.
 
 
For those of you who are here
because you might be interested
in having me
SUBSTITUTE TEACH
in your classroom, this site should give you an idea of what I'm about, but for specific information,
click on the Substitute Teacher Page
UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO HEALTH PROBLEMS,
I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO SUBSTITUTE TEACH FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR, BUT I PLAN TO RETURN BY SEPTEMBER - IF AT ALL POSSIBLE!
 
Know that I would be most happy to serve as a
TUTOR
for adults or youngsters with special English
or English as a Second Language needs.  I can also help students prepare for the SRI or ACT tests.
.
 
i WRITE. 
You can find my rather prolonged attempt  at writing a novel at
I'm still working on it! 
 
I read a great deal of poetry, and I write a modicum of poetry; 
some of these (my own and favorites written by others)
have been posted on my Writer/Editor Page.
.
 
I like creating
 WEB PAGES.
 
 You can find a collection of horse poems I've gleaned from many sources over the years for my daughter, Nico Wind,
on the web page I created at http://rave_n_howl.tripod.com
(where you will also find at least one poem I've written). 
 
Information about other pages I've created or would be happy to create for youcan be found by checking the links below.
 
 
I worked, over several years, on the website for
the JUNE KEY DELTA HOUSE,
a dream of Portland's chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. 
The community center is a Living Building, a "green" building project, developed by African American women who belong to Delta Sigma Thi Sorority. This building now provides a community center that sustains the needs of the multi-cultural neighborhood it serves, encouraging sound and healthysocial, educational, artistic, economic and environmentaldevelopment and awareness.  More information:  http://key-delta-living-building.com/.
 
 
I also really enjoy creating
 YouTube slideshows
that sometimes include music and portray a variety of  special events that might appear on some of my sites,
a few of which are:
June Key Delta Community Center Demonstration Garden:
 
Joanne Shenandoah Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration
 
AMONG MANY OTHERS!

I have also served as an
ARTISTS'
REPRESENTATIVE.
Some of my clients, for whom I've created webpages, include:
My "oldest" webpage,  that of my dear old friend, Ed Edmo, at http://ededmo.tripod.com.
 
Foster (K'ona) Kalama (Native Artist, Storyteller, Flutist)
 
Nico Wind Cordova's Karaoke Pony page

and a few others
noted on the Artists' Rep Page.

Finally, I am an experienced
 
CHAP BOOK PUBLISHER!
 
Maybe you have a group offabulous poems you've written
and would like to see themcollected in book form.
I can help you with the process of deciding which poems to include,
which font(s), paper stock, colors,forms, etc., you wish to use,
and I will produce the numbers of chap books you think you'll need.
You can find some examples of chap books I've produced
on the Publish Yours! Page. I look forward to facilitating
your debut! So you'll know, I recently completeda 400+ page bookfor a reasonable price! It looks great!

The outstanding sound you hear on this site is provided (with her permission) by Joanne Shenandoah on her CD, Matriarch: Iroquois Women's SongsJoanne is a personal friend and greatly admired custodian of the music and culture of her tribe. 
The collection of recordings on the CD from which comes this lovely song "Kahawi'tha" ("She Carries It Along"), dedicated to Joanne's very special daughter, Leah, was also dedicated to the Shenandoah family and all lifegivers of Mother Earth. 
 What I especially appreciate about this work by Joanne is that her people, the Haudenosaunee, believe " . . . the Earth is a living organism with its own form of consciousness. 
They feel by holding women in high esteem they are also paying homage to Mother Earth."
