Here’s a quick meditation on work, success, childhood, schooling, parenting, American culture…. 8 minutes.
Thank you for sharing this video. My eyes are leaking a bit now. )
May we all stay blue.
I remember feeling that way ALL through school. I could see the light at the end of the tunnel when I thought I only had to go to 5th grade. But I remember sometime in 2nd or 3rd grade crying when I learned school went all the way to 12th grade.
Thank you for posting this, Will. It is timely for me. I felt like I was getting a little paler recently when my daughter (8) got enrolled in school after a year or so asking to go to school. When it actually came time to go, she did not want to, yet her dad felt she should if she wants to be successful, educated, etc etc. And the kiddo started losing her color. And she tried. For a day. And then she voted, loudly and clearly- No school! I am not against schools by any means, but our colors quickly came back as we grew at peace with snuggling all morning, and sledding all day in the whitest pine woods, and catching rainbows in creeks, and getting messy with pastels and chalk with most spirited group of homeschooled kids. May us all listen to the sounds of those colors before we listen to the noises around us.
Boy, did that make me weep. A good weep. Yes, may we all stay blue. May we all notice what makes us blue and then do it! Thank you!
Scott. Kind of like that barn you’re self-building…all the way to the end
Hello Happy Bee, somewhere in Arizona. Very good to hear all colors made it back and unfaded.
RLB somewhere in…Moab? Note: Two blues just came in our lane, both tall, one especially well shod.
Nicole. To bluest Canada.
