Get Quiet and Listen

It’s appropriate that my first post is on a Monday morning as I get ready to rush out the door. The life of a high school teacher begins well before dawn. I started this blog because I have a lot to say. I hope some of it will be interesting to some people and that those people will find me and comment.

Here’s a quote (paraphrased) that appeals to me:

“The first step is to get quiet and to listen to our souls. If we can learn to listen, we can hear an invitation to meaning and purpose.”

– from Marjory Bankson, The call to the Soul
