Good morning Friend,

Writing from the university.

New students checking in yesterday, from dozens of countries

and our opportunity to be welcoming, friendly, informative, reassuring

We have done this many times over the years

and as ever it’s an honor

bearing witness to their arrival

carrying on the regular round of our year

their failures and successes all in the future.

They come and they go, and have done for the 30 years of my career

(and did before that, and will do after I am gone)

Grateful to be a part of something larger than I am.

Amen.

  1. You remind me what I loved about being a tiny part of Education: being part of something bigger than myself, maybe being, for a very few, someone who made an infinitesimal positive difference. ❤
