This week’s essay is a short one, at just 5 minutes, but an important one. This is the first one I wrote for the book (not knowing it at the time). It began with the drawing. Then the poem, which revelaed to me that there was a lesson to be learned from this little flower. And then the essay, which taught to me how important this lesson was to my maturity as a young man, and how I carried that lesson into my professional life as a teacher. It also showed me that there might be a book here to write. Hope you give it a listen.
