On the Horizon

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose." ~ Dr. Seuss

La Rentrée -- "the reentry" -- I love this French expression for back-to-school. As much as I relish summer's languid pace, September makes me eager for change. As Jordan Baker told Daisy Buchanan, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” (F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby). It's hot and humid today, but soon, we'll be enjoying cooler weather, cozy sweaters, fires in the fireplace, hot cider, football games, and the beautiful fall colors. School starts today, and even though I never really left this summer, I am ready for The Reentry. As I begin my 25th year in the Pewaukee School District and I am excited to discover what's on the horizon.
