Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children. ― Khalil Gibran
Yesterday a group of elementary school teachers (active and retired) spent their Labor Day afternoon together watching The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
This movie has mixed reviews. My friends enjoyed it and thought it was “interesting” and “a nice break,” then moved on to other topics.
I, and all my voices/experiences, was totally a part of this movie and needed time to just “sit” with the connection. It was the story I was looking for. One whose wisdom made me cry as it offered its playful philosophy through the eyes of a child.
