What if...?

"Kids think with their brains cracked wide open;
becoming an adult, I've decided, is only a slow sewing shut."
Jodi Picoult

     As a teacher, one of the questions that drives me is "What if...?" The universe is contained within those three dots. Every good teacher knows that the right question is more important than the right answer. Here are a few of the 'what ifs' I've been chewing on:

     What if time is an expanding circle rather than a spring unwinding?

     What if there is a sound inside me someone needs to hear?

     What if everyone could be childlike and released their sound?

     What if the One who created time stepped into the circle?

     What if anything is possible?


  1. Just shared this on Google+.

    That 'what if' is such a powerful tool to do the unlocking ... or as Picoult says... "the unsewing."

    1. Yes, the unsewing! I am a recovering 'wonder-robber'. More on that later...
