I saw this gorgeous sailboat on my way home from the Brave Teachers Fall Retreat this past September. It reminds me of this quote that I found about 7 years ago, and then it returned like an old friend this summer.
Be not a slave to your own past--
plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far,
so you shall come back with
with new power,
with an advanced experience
that shall explain and overlook the old.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
I like this so much that I turned it into a little poster, just for you, brave teacher. Grab it HERE! It will make you think of the photo above!
