each one can be true.

Standard

two friends

both on the same kinder playground

under the same spring sun

sitting on the same wooden bench

each sharing a complaint with the other

one says that she is so hot that she is sweating

the other says that she so cold that she is freezing

both are sincere in describing what they are feeling

each accepts what the other is saying

and listens without judgement.

 

“truth can be stated in a thousand different ways,

yet each one can be true.”

-swami vivekananda

see if it works.

Standard

one of my former students

who i now work with after school

created this travel brochure

complete with her plan for ‘how to get there’

using an innovative method i hadn’t considered

but it makes perfect sense from her perspective.
