THE MAZE (VIDEO)
On a beautiful, sunny morning while on a retreat in Buckeystown, Maryland, I happened upon a magnificent labyrinth. Its circular stone path called to me. I had no choice but to enter. As I took my first step into the maze, I thought about my students and their challenging journey this school year. I decided to take them with me. I videotaped the experience. Along the path, I noticed a tiny, lone sprout that had forced its way through the rock. Its seeming message was evident. I smiled.
When I returned to school the next day, I shared the video with my students, and asked them to respond in writing to what they saw. Their powerful metaphors assure me that we all will find our way in the confusion, in the noise, in this labyrinth of life.
