My favorite song on it is "One For the Mockingbird", which wasn't a big hit, but then again my favorites hardly ever are. The first verse hit me like a slap in the face:
I have learned through all my past mistakes,My schedule lately has been beyond crazy. I have taken to writing what i am supposed to be doing each day chronologically, with a location on the white board so that i don't miss anything.
not to let the hurdles sap my energy.
Time will tell and time is all it takes.
You won't see the bastards knock the running out of me.
It is hectic, frantic and delightful.
Though i know there are things slipping through the cracks, i can honestly say that i am giving this new reordering, this evolution at work my all. In fact, almost everyone in the education department is on board and working themselves to the bone, but there is always a doubter, a naysayer. Our resident wet blanket is driving me nuts with self-centeredness and an almost willful obtuseness about the imperative to change, but i refuse to be deterred. I will make the most of this incredible opportunity, work at my full capacity, stay healthy and be joyful despite the human roadblock.
In defiance of negativity, these lyrics will be this week's quote.
