Do Better Tomorrow

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities
no doubt have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with
your old nonsense.

This day is all that is
good and fair.
It is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on yesterdays.



Ten Years… and counting


Ten years….of writing, reflecting, and posting.

This blog has morphed from a class blog (2004), to a runner’s diary,  to a tech teacher’s tips for teachers, to a writer’s journal, to my progress with letterpress.

June is always a time to reflect, at least for a former teacher. It makes me think about Annie Dillard’s comment:

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”

I’m trying to picture myself years from now, thrashing about, wondering if the way I’ve spent my days matters.
