When things are new, and in transition, one might be reminded of a chalkboard. One that has boasted messages and lessons of days gone by, and then erased over and over again to make room to teach new lessons, inspire new ideas and challenge the students’ ways of thinking.
Transitions are an opportunity to begin, but from this point, this moment.
Not all over again.
To wipe the slate clean, so to speak, would be fruitless wouldn’t it?
There should always remain the dust of important lessons learned.
