Illuminated Minds


"To the dull mind all nature is leaden. To the illuminated mind the whole world burns and sparkles with light."
Ralph Waldo Emerson








Great teachers are all around us, and not just in the classroom. Sometimes they are on the printed page, waiting to be brought back to life. I shared the thoughts of this great thinker with my students, hoping to simply plant the seed that learning can lead to illumination. A few days later Summer sent one of her vacation pictures to me. It demonstrates true comprehension of the quote and evidence that the seed has indeed begun to sprout.

Thank you Summer. I think your face shows your own illuminated mind, just as it does on the faces of your peers.
