I am quite sure that writing about some dream you had lands you solidly in the territory of “lame blog post.”

But I actually had this dream.

Man.

It was embarrassingly epic.

The world was about to end. Pure and simple. No choices, no bargains.

It was so profoundly sad.  I was with my sweet boy, but there were so many dreams that would never be.

The big point was that NONE of the crap at work, in educational reform, in data, in targeted instruction, meant one tiny thing.

The only thing that mattered was the people.  That’s ALL. The hug I gave to my student  at the farmer’s market—that was beautiful and enormous.  Her score on a test– that was microscopic.

  1. Yup. All that stuff is just ‘stuff’. The feelings, the love, that’s real.

    At the end of the day these ARE all the things that truly mattered. If only it wasn’t just a dream, right?

    Love your “Not Freshly Pressed” bar. Too funny!

      Well, I was relieved that the end of the world thing was a dream. I try to remember that when I look back on my life, some data-driven work goal is never going to cross my mind.
