I’ve been enjoying the Snaphsots Haiku Journal (from Liverpool,

England) and want to share a sampling by two of our favorite

Honored Guests:

 

 


backstroke . . .

the undersides

of alder leaves

 

 

 

 








bronze sundial

the junco cocks his head

from V to VII

 

 

 

 


sunlit shallows

a frog burrows deeper

into the mud

 

 

 


“backstroke . . .”  Snapshots 9

“bronze sundial” & “sunlit shallows” Snapshots 10

 








hawk flight

 








history lesson

slowly the caged eagle

turns our way

 

 

 

 

 

mayflies

spin between us . . .

a lost thought

 

 

 

 

 








a new term

clear water tumbles

over stones

 


“a new term” & “mayflies” – Snapshots 9

“history lesson” – Snapshots 10

the guys show

snapshots of their kids —

the bachelor’s tight smile

tiny check There was an interesting guest post yesterday at Legal Ethics Forum by

Prof. Larry Fischer (Southwestern U. Law School) on “The Difficulties

of Teaching Legal Ethics.”  Fischer asks why the course can’t get no respect.

The post and most of the comments are thoughtful   (via The Fedster)




  • The discussion at LEF makes me wonder yet again about the 

    meaning of responses given in the massive and costly new “Law

    School Survey of Student Engagement,” which is described in the 

    NYLJ article, “New Survey Tackles Complex Questions About

    Law Schools,” May 2, 2005.  For example: NYLJ says that a “positive

    result” of the law student survey is the finding that “76 percent were

    satisfied with their schools’ emphasis on law practice ethics.” Another

    so-called positive result: “82 percent were encouraged to learn by

    applying classroom theory to practical problems.”   Please, don’t

    try this at home, boys and girls!
