It is a perfect day! Blue skies, moderate temperature, nice breeze. You couldn’t make an afternoon more desirable if you tried. I am waiting to go into the jail to hold a class for incarcerated fathers. The sterile atmosphere, concrete floors and steel doors will be in stark contrast to what’s just beyond the walls.
What I’d like to do is bottle up this day and take it into class with me. I wouldn’t have to teach or say a word. I’d open the bottle and stand back! Nature would speak for me. It would talk of beauty, freedom, joy and life.
I wonder if it would inspire the students to never be confined, cut off, unable to experience a day like this again? I think it might.
