the start of a new week

it is going to be a great week, i can feel it. i am so ready for a break, for thanksgiving, and most of all for time with the ones i love most.

here’s to a good week. mine has started off well already. . .

starting with today – ecstatic dance at the flowjo with etta today in carborro, weaver street salad for lunch, and of course some open eye and journal writing time.

then tomorrow – dana comes to nc!!! i couldn’t be more excited. she’s such a happy part of my life!

“the complexity of our present trouble suggests as never before that we need to change our present concept of education. education is not properly an industry, and its proper use is not to serve industries, either by job-training or by industry-subsidized research. it’s proper use is to enable citizens to live lives that are economically, politically, socially, and culturally responsible. this cannot be done by gathering or “accessing” what we now call “information” – which is to say facts without context and therefore without priority. a proper education enables young people to put their lives in order, which means knowing what things are more important than other things; it means putting first things first.”
