Reaccreditation

“Compliance is not for compliance sake. Compliance is really for student’s sake.”   To be a school, there must be students. To be a good school, they must be engaged. Engaged students need an engaged school.   Regardless of results, students come first. What they see, and what they do, prepares them, not just for […]

Ritual

Before going out into the world, I mirror-gaze to see what is seen, and then open the door and go forth.   Before engaging with another, I stop and look intently for them; and then, in peace I bow discreetly   Before encroaching into your space, I step forward with my arm outstretched; and then, […]

Collusion

I am who I am, I stand here and now.   I loathe the dark and accept my shadow. I love the light and confuse clarity.   Sometimes my heart conspires with my will. Sometimes my mind overrules my body.   I straddle the truth. I live there and then.   Resistance is futile, to […]

Fear Itself

No one knows but me my fear No one cares or sheds a tear.   To look with cursory glance, one would not have an inkling of my distress or trembling.   Shoulders straight and chest held high, I walk with calm assurance playing an all-is-well stance.   Alone in my room I cringe and […]

Lazarus

I’ve been here for a while. There ain’t no way out, I don’t see a way out.   There are always possibilities   There’s no sign of life. It would seem I can’t get out, I don’t see a way in.   Seize the moment, be the belief   This must be the end. I’ll […]

Insurgent

With mouth and eyes agape, I am a change agent but not for changes sake. I stand for attention, and will take the hard right; rarely the easy left. I won’t belittle change with something less than change. With back straight and chest high, I can’t just do something. I stand there with a “Yes”; […]

Shortstop (Derek Jeter)

We sing in unison, then settle in to “Play ball” He turns and squats before Her, he bows his head and prays “Help me”, he asks silently, “I beg you, keep me whole.” Ready, he springs to his feet, filled with Her mercy He plays with abandon on his toes He plays gracefully with his […]

Dim the Din

Deafening silence defies demanding. Dwell in the moment, doubt not the Word, with discernment is clad. I am not searching, I am travelling with friends commingling. Demurred distractions Dismissed – be still, a delicate voice speaks. Past informs present — Listen with intent and silent assent Duped not by “owned”, I, despite the “story”, dissent […]
