‘I hate a Roman named Status Quo!’ he said to me. ‘Stuff your eyes with wonder,’ he said, ‘live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that,’ he said, ‘shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.’
~Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
It’s time. Over the next several weeks I am going to begin revealing my plan for next year, a two-year journey in 219 to shake the foundation and bring down some of the edificial facades of education, challenging the status quo, …shaking the sloth.
So, then, the Morning Minutes will now mostly be devoted to working through–lots to think about--revising, refining, and finalizing the blueprints for my remodeling project in 219. Excited to share the process with you and get your input and feedback along the way. The journey begins.
Happy Wednesday, all. May your eyes be stuffed with wonder.
