Change What You Can
Are You Scared?
Fear is one of the greatest problems in life. A mind that is caught in fear lives in confusion, in conflict, and therefore must be violent, distorted and aggressive. It dare not move from away from its own patterns of thinking, and this breeds hypocrisy.J. Krishnamurti “Freedom From the Known”

Lavender on my mind – will plant some in a couple weeks. I love rollerskating. Time stands still. 🙂
I spotted this seed pod on my run this morning. It reminded me of a quote about how today’s seeds (thoughts and actions) become tomorrow’s flowers (or weeds). Through our thoughts and actions of the present, we create our future.
A student made this for me a long time ago.
I mentioned that I love to roller skate. I don’t even remember telling my students that about myself. Teaching is demanding and the parts that I don’t enjoy: “paperwork/grading,” meetings, and (now) wearing a mask while talking all day and handling parent frustrations with online work…are growing.
We just went on break. I intend to refresh. Reflect. Re-energize. I love my job. I have the rest of the year to be better.
