September Reflections

A Beautiful Mind

“No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.” ~ Emma Goldman

Buried Treasure

“Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.” ~ Aristotle

The Expert’s Secret

“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field. ~ Neils Bohr

September—a time of reflection as summer winds down, school resumes, and autumn begins. It signals nature’s lingering slow dance, settling into its eventual winter rest. It’s a time for routine, a time for new learning. These are some thoughts that come to my mind.


There is a natural rhythm that comes with September. The reconnection with work and friends brings renewal to the gift of friendship. Friends are a touch of love from heaven. If you think you don’t have any, then reach out and be one. Suddenly you find you have one. They are a treasure hard to find but worth looking and waiting for–an always safe harbor in the storms of life. Peace, Alexandria
