of life in general.
Today was a fantastic day. I mean really, really good. Not because something super duper special happened but rather because I was reminded of the pursuit. We had a poetry presentation from a local published poet. He was good and his work was easy to read/relate to. My students really enjoyed it and I think they got something from it. It was cool. After school I got my hair done at a new spot. It was cute and they treated me really well. The stylist was very nice and she took so much time with me~ asking questions about my hair and haircare routine. She did a good job and I will go back. That was cool too.
Two very different parts of my day. Seemingly unrelated but in actuality they were rather similar. These people loved what they were doing. The poet was engaging and powerful and everything that he needed to be to pull in a room full of teenagers & the stylist was warm, and cool and all that you would want in a stylist. I left with more of a pep in my step. Both of them used their strong gifts to add a bit of polish to the world.
They were a needed reminder to pursue the creative things that I am passionate about. I needed that reminder. Do you?
