I painted this last spring right after Maya Angelou died. I read many of her books and was always inspired by her prose and her attitude.
This one is so appropriate for this time of year with everyone going back to school. Teachers are such an important part of life. They affect the very threads of our social and cultural fabric. Thank you to all of you who devote your lives to training others, no matter the age.
And not just in public school (which is only centuries old). Most of our learning does not occur within the walls of a public school–as I discussed last week. It takes place at home. In our churches. In nature. In stores. On dance floors and little league fields. On sidewalks and roads.
Think of ALL of the people you learn from on a daily basis! Think of ALL you learn each and every day still. (And if you are not still learning you are in a heap of trouble people!) Think of ALL the people you are teaching and touching.
This blog is one of the many ways I get to share what I am learning. Thank you for all of the comments back last week. I learned, I taught. You learned, I hope that you shared and taught as well.
Let’s do great work together. Let’s make Maya proud. Let’s make GOD PROUD.
