another beautiful outdoor adventure day shared with the kinder
“there is such a difference between asking,
“what did you do today?”
“what do you want to remember about today?”
still no power, but beautiful days
“the town was glad with morning light; places that had shown ugly and distrustful all night long, now wore a smile; and sparkling sunbeams dancing on chamber windows, and twinkling through blind and curtain before sleepers’ eyes, shed light even into dreams, and chased away the shadows of the night.”
what i saw
as i arrived at school
for parent teacher conferences
at the beginning of the day.
also what i saw
as i left school
after parent teacher conferences
at the end of the same day.
a day always passes
no matter how busy or how calm
no matter what we have done or not done
somehow slipping by.
‘the long day wanes; the slow moon climbs the deep.’
-alfred lord tennyson
“finish each day and be done with it.
you have done what you could.
some blunders and absurdities
no doubt crept in;
forget these as soon as you can.
tomorrow is a new day.
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered
with your old nonsense”
