The tree

Shel Silverstein wrote a great book called "The Giving Tree."

That is me these days. I don't have any apples left - I gave them away. I don't have any more branches from which you can swing. I don't even have a trunk left for you to climb. I am nothing more than a stump.

If you want to sit on me, you are welcome. Otherwise, please don't ask me for anything else. I don't have anything left.

This is of course, directed to my school and my administration. I am asked if I want to be on this committee or that committee or to do this or that, and frankly, the answer is no. I don't have any more time or energy to commit to a project that will be voided out with the next administration or board or project du jour.

  1. Think of it like... being a movie star and choosing which scripts you're going to accept. It can be exhausting to be so popular, but it's truly an honor as well! ;D
