Meditated this morning
on Forty-three days
that is what is left
in the school year.
I think of my Focus
How I will need to be Flexible
How I need to incorporate Fun
How Fast the time will go
How Free I will Feel
as I implement my plan.
Yesterday I read about ensemble teaching
How we grow and learn through the group
Not necessarily just as an individual.
And it seems this year I set out to be very
Can’t say it worked all that well.
But when I pull out the Fun
The Freedom to create as a group
To take some risks, to Flow
It has worked every single time.
Forty-three days to practice.
To create a new Flexible, Free Form approach.
To honor the group as a whole.
Listening to them.
It is testing season and last year
I got so depressed.
Not this year.
Forty-three days that can be chaotic,
Forty-three days of Flexible Fun.
This is the way I honor this spring break,
that brought me so much more than I bargained for.
