Off to the Big Apple for a few days.
Catch you when I return.
Will upload photos during the next
four days via Flickr.
Word of the day: Waves
Music: Amarantine, Enya
...but now I know that our world is no more permanent than a wave rising on the ocean. Whatever our struggles and triumphs, however we may suffer them, all too soon they bleed into a wash, just like watery ink on paper.
Just finished reading, "Memoirs of a Geisha" and the above quote was taken from the last paragraph of the book. Can't wait to see the movie now! Now off to write on my moleskine...but think I'll use a pencil! ;-)
While walking along a beach,
A man saw someone in the distance
Leaning down, picking something up,
And throwing it into the ocean.
As he came closer, he saw thousands of starfish the tide had thrown onto the beach.
Unable to return to the ocean during low tide, The starfish were dying.
He observed a young man picking up the
Starfish one by one
And throwing them back into the water.
After watching the seemingly futile effort,
The observer said, “There must be thousands of
Starfish on this beach. It would be impossible for
You to get to all of them. There are simply too many.
You can’t possibly save enough to make a difference.”
The young man smiled as he continued to pick up
Another starfish and toss it back into the ocean.
“It made a difference to that one,” he replied.
In honor of Graduation Ceremonies tomorrow -Saturday, May 13, 2006. I am honored to be participating and seeing those starfish that we as educators tossed back into the sea. I will be wearing my starfish pin on my graduation regalia.
