I’ve just returned from doing some consulting work in Wisconsin. What a great two days! I figured since it was Tuesday still I could get my slice of life in, but how can I capture all that is on my mind? Last week I taught my students to do a slice of life as a poem, so that’s what I’ll try today too.
All packed, ready to go
driving long roads looking for fall leaves
CLUNK! What’s that….uh oh
Trucks rumbling by as I kneel on the highway
Thank god for bungee cords and duct tape, on the road again
Planning, preparing, worrying
Greeting, presenting, bonding
talking, teaching, reflecting
Ah, the joy of a real lunch.
I know the roads, Have the lay of the land
A new set of teachers and students
we have more in common than we think
learning, planning, preparing
teaching, reflecting, laughing
Time to head home.
Storms roll through as we drive on
A burning fushia sunset behind us
the cool full moon contrasts a velvet blue sky in front
