About Me

Laws of Gravity is my odd little blog. Primarily, I write about my experiences at work--substitute teaching. When I'm not working, I post about my other interests such as knitting, writing, or my Etsy shop called Zizi Rho Designs.

I appreciate comments. I'm happy to hear what you have to say.

The Schedule
(yes, there is one!)

Primarily, I write about the interesting thing that happened to me today. When I'm working, that'll have to do with some aspect of my experiences as a substitute teacher. On the days I'm not working (and if nothing notable happened), I post about these topics:
I post no more than five times a week. (Except for the April A to Z Challenge.) If I miss a day during the week and something notable happens, then I may post on Saturday or Sunday.

Why "Laws of Gravity"?

The short answer: I liked the sound of it.

I wish I could say I came up with "Laws of Gravity" on my own, but when I saw it as a title for some action movie that I never saw, I couldn't get it out of my head. It was brilliant. And like most brilliant things that I like, I adopted it.

The longer answer has to do with why that title resonated with me. It has to do with how gravity is such a fundamental force (one of the four), but physicists still aren't sure exactly what it is. (The physics geek in me can go on and on about that.) Gravity is tied up in space, time, and relativity. And it was just so cool to see astronauts in the space shuttle put up two marbles and watch as the two marbles found each other and stuck to each other.

Gravity is the attraction of two masses. If you take that on a deeper level, then all of us are attracted to one another through a fundamental force. Lessons, ideas, and experiences pull at us. On a metaphysical level, gravity impacts us in ways that we don't often think about.

I think about this from time to time, but I have yet to form a coherent sentence on what this all means to me. When I do, I'll write it here. Until then, this attempt at an explanation will have to suffice.
