It is NOT one voice all by itself
That makes the difference
It is the rich and remarkable harmonies
Of voices working together
Fresh from 3 days in a row teaching and collaborating with others to create an experience for the kids at Winter Camp, I find myself this early Saturday morning less exhausted knowing Today I don’t have to go DO it all again.
I started out as loose and free as I like to BE when teaching. It was pretty clear that such an approach would NOT suffice.
So… I stepped up.
I shared my insights. I asked questions.
It is pretty darned amazing how that works. How one voice grows strained and stretched BEyond capacity, yet 2 or 3 together create something extraordinary. Something BEautimous.
As I did so I felt empowered and re-energised. I didn’t wilt at the “slings and arrows” some kids can seem to BE launching at me. [sensitive flower that I am!!!] I met them there and found as my mind opened my heart did, too.
Kids today… this is what we often BEmoan. But this week I completed that sentence in new ways. They DON’T learn to problem-solve, think creatively, or work collaboratively. That, then, was what we gave them an opportunity to DO.
I love you, Currie
