Day 126: May 5, 2016 Wider Days
May 5, 2016 Wider Days
Today is Thursday, Wider Day. The students will start to arrive soon after 7:30 am. It is now 6:14 am and the minutes and seconds that pass are not wasted. Time matters. Some corrections are still waiting, all papers are printed, and the studio needs a bit more arranging. There is nothing about this early morning arranging, cleaning, preparing or fixing that has ever frustrated me. Sure, there are times when I might not feel completely prepared but never has there been a dread. The Wider Endeavor from start to beginning fills me and continues to do so.
Our Wider efforts have blossomed and for this we are grateful. A dip into Wider changes and charges students. To date our students flourish. This is what we promised and this is what we see- a love for learning.
Our vision waxes as we are in the process of developing a Wider team. Robyn and I are most grateful and honored by the students with whom we have journeyed. They are more organized, challenged, inspired, productive, and curious. We look forward to seeing their innovations, creations, and books they will publish. Wider continues to widen and we look forward to the new faces coming next year!
