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


I attended a meeting last night seeking community input as the search for a new school superintendent begins.  Although I retired twelve years ago, I now work with beginning teachers, many of whom are employed in this parish’s system.

There were about 35 people present, some I’ve known from public meetings like this twenty years ago. Why was I there, I kept asking myself in this morning’s journal pages. What did I learn?

I am using Alan Cohen’s words for further reflection…

Every choice before you represents the universe inviting you to remember who you are and what you want.

Life’s gift to you is your unique vantage point. Your gift to life is expressing from it.

Heaven is gained or lost not by dramatic deeds, but by the simple of acts of daily living.

Fantasy is often closer to reality than what most people accept as reality.

Let out a little more string on your kite.
