The road less traveled
Sunday, August 06, 2017
Today, on my virtual world walking tour, I reached:
"St Michael's Mount, a unique and historic small tidal island in Mount's Bay in Cornwall, England. The island, which is managed by the National Trust and is home to about 35 people, is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between at low tide."
I cannot seem to tear my eyes away from the granite setts, there is something comforting about this causeway. The unique placement of the rocks makes me long to touch the rocks, inhale deeply the salt in the air and feel the sea breeze against my skin. The location at the end intrigues me and seems fitting as a new school year begins.
I am beginning another adventure for the 31st time in my teaching career on a path that is unknown. I am reminded of Frost's poem, The road not traveled, education is struggling to keep up with the demands of our world. Different is necessary. Different is scary. I pray I am up for the challenge this school year brings. To have faith and not be afraid to try something new as I step out on the road less traveled.
