It’s the final countdown…

What are Control Towers for?

…Da da daaaa, Da da da da Daaaa. It’s time for feedback! So lets have a quick review about the overall course, the content, the approaches and methods used and the learning effect in the end.

Firstly looking at the methods of grading that were used during the course. Here, the lectures made use of online blogging and an oral examination. In my opinion I think both options combined do actually provide a clear overview about the knowledge and insight one has gained during the course, but the value adding opportunities can still be extended.

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Sunday 11th December

Here we are my darling

Safely in Miami

Lots of time to relax

I’m sure you would agree.

A long ten hour flight

Taking us over the ocean

Thinking of you all the way

Heart’s filled with emotion.

Love you my Angel

Our first American holiday

Since you went to heaven

It will be so different


Frankie Angel Bear and Frank SpongeBob have joined us for a bite to eat

The Stragglers

Little stragglers

I wonder that

fretting about among

these last glorious flowers

leftover summer gems

balancing precariously

on the brink

of gusty storms.

You there

fluttering softly

in that wild wind

harmonizing humbly

with bees

backyard beauties

awe bringing

living color sculptures.

I imagine you taking to the sky

in full flight

upward searching

finally finding

a true tribe of fluttering fantasy

assembling into formation

like Pegasus in the air.
