Learning the Ropes

August 22, 2017 (234/365)

This week, new teachers are joining us in Pewaukee to learn the ropes. I wish them smooth sailing, yet there will likely be rough seas as well as fair winds. As a coach and mentor, this is my philosophy: "Be a lighthouse rather than a lifeboat. Do not rescue, but instead, help others to find their own way to shore, guiding them by your example."

"The wings of angels are often found on the backs of the least likely people." - Eric Honeycutt

How do you recognize the angels in your life?

Hush

« L'automne est le silence avant l'hiver. » - Proverbe français

"Autumn is the hush before winter." The ephemeral color palate mellows to soft grays, deep blues, and dark browns accented by a dusting of pristine white snow or a hint of pale pink on the horizon as November offers a welcomed pause -- a gentle hush of subtle beauty between the brilliance of the changing leaves and the magic of the holiday season. 

November Space

"But there is always a November space after the leaves have fallen when she felt it was almost indecent to intrude on the woods…for their glory terrestrial had departed and their glory celestial of spirit and purity and whiteness had not yet come upon them.” - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Windy Poplars
