197 Days ’til 40: Wishing for a Snow Day

 

I better be perfectly honest.  The students are not yet back at school.  The administrators have been on campus for one week, the new teachers for one day short of one week, and the returning teachers for one day. The students arrive on Monday…….  the school is almost set up – ALMOST – and there is a host of paperwork that must be completed and sent out sometime in the next three days.  The school year is about to begin.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act.
