The Insanity Stops Tomorrow

Albert Einstein defined “insanity” as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Today was an insane afternoon, thanks once again to the __th grade class at my school. I continued the insanity by continuing to employ methods which, while working with other groups, don’t work on these people. The insanity stops tomorrow. I’m changing the game big time, and it’s going to freak these kids out.

After a long talk with the school principal, I have been given further tools to work with. Much bigger guns than I had before. So although I don’t have a class with these people tomorrow, I’m going to get them all together for a little talk. (I’ll talk, they’ll listen).

Hopefully, the control will now shift back over to me in that class. I’m sure some of the kids – and maybe even some parents – are going to be upset with me. Hey, they’re more than welcome to come sit in that class some Monday afternoon and give me their thoughts. Until then, it’s a whole new game – and I’m going to win.

**Note – the above picture isn’t actually Albert Einstein. It’s ME, the way I look after 45 minutes with these crazy people each week.

    Makes me wonder if any of the _th grade class parents read your blog. And, if they do – have they decided to keep their kids home tomorrow?
    Good luck?

    More power to you, Brotha, to teach these kids respect for you and one another. Let the parents “wake up” if they’re not doing this themselves at home. In the long run these kids will be grateful that you did!! Please pass along any winning tips to Perry!! Will be praying! XO

    Indiana Jones seems to do pretty amazing things with a whip. I’m just saying.

    I recently went to the Natural Histtory Museum. I visited the Gem/Mineral Exibit. It was incredible to see the amazing colors of beryl and tourmaline. The light pinks, green, purples…wow. The juxtapositions with the other rocks. Unbelievable. I’ve worked with all kinds of beads but not beryl or tourmaline. I’ve seen all kinds of jade, malakite, lapis etc but to see the uncut versions in such enormous forms. It was just WOW. I felt the power of God. His amazing wisdom, creativity and power. I wonder why I don’t get out more to take advantage of all there is to see and do out there more often. I’m glad you’re exploring your passion.
