You are living in a poem

I have fallen in love with the poetry and writing of Naomi Shihab Nye.  (If you don’t know her – check her out!) From her, I have been contemplating how poetry widens moments of life, creating more space, wonder, and gratitude for the sacred all around us.  What happens if we live from this place – as if our every moment was a line of a poem??  What is our response to the world around us, wherever we are?  As we ponder this, and celebrate our expanded understanding and experience of community, we’ll celebrate our 8th graders moving up to the high school program in the fall.
