Wk4 Comment #2 - Kathleen Grace-Velazquez

You picked up on something that also jumped out to me while reading these last chapters of the book.  The idea of carrying around the spark and always having it at the ready, really speaks to me.  I know I don't always think that way, but it's important to keep that in mind, and be prepared to create or inspire at any given moment.

Original Post:
The possibilities carry a burning cinder in a metal box with you to assure you have a spark whenever you need one...oh the possibilities!  And to think we have this spark with us at all times now and most of the times we don't even realize it.  Such a waste.  As an educator, this book has truly resonated with me.  I feel and hope that this is how I look at my students (and at the world), that I am there offering an "invitation for enrollment, ready to participate, willing to be moved and inspired, offer that which lights [me] up, and...eager to catch the spark." And direct our lives in a positive direction that is best for WE.  Positivitity leads to the possibilities.
