A calling ...

"We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims."

"Make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone."

Welcome Pause

Oh blanket of snow,
Cover me, allow me my rest,
Prepare me for Spring.

Nobody was praying for snow as hard as I was. With grades and mid-year evaluations due, with a full calendar of annual IEP Meetings (Individualized Education Program Meetings), not to mention full throttle curriculum pacing, I felt as if I was driving my machine into the ground. Executive function was being short-circuited by sheer mental exhaustion. Slowly, I am catching my breath. Careful planning makes high level execution possible, and slowly I am regaining control over my calendar. Not out of the woods yet, but I sure needed that snow.
