2014 Snapshots

Monday, March 21

absent

it’s been a while since I’ve been here.

there’s a lot happening right now and so my blog’s taken a back seat.

there are changes ahead for me and my family which is probably why things have been busy around here lately. I’ll share on that a little later. But there’s also a lot happening around the world that we just have to be aware of.

When your 6 year old daughter comes home and talks of the recent tragic events in Japan and how her Japanese classmates are sad and scared it jolts you into putting things into perspective, prioritizing what really needs your attention and what is really important at the end of the day.

As a school community we’re making origami paper cranes. As you probably know paper cranes have a tremendous symbolic value in Japan and around the world, representing the will to live and to carry on as well as the hope for peace.

I’ve never made a paper crane before but I want to do this.

Happy Monday and Happy Week!

It's not an easy time. As a school, working on symbols for hope and peace is a good thing.
