If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

2. initiated the winter after school session with an interactive exploration of Pandora’s Box (see yesterday’s post.)

3. presented a “rigorous” lesson (important education buzz word) in my intern (beginning teachers in an alternative certification program) seminar on lesson plans that was both engaging and practical.

4. continued to purge boxes, drawers and closets of meaningless clutter.

It’s my old hippie mantra revisited.  If it feels good, do it!hippie
