Dylan won an award at school today for perfect attendance.  There were also awards given out for spelling, handwriting, good citizenship, and caring.  Dylan didn’t win any of those, but that’s okay.  He’s plenty good at those things, and eventually he’ll be great at them because he works hard every single day.

In graduate school, I studied modern dance under the late Viola Farber. About dancing (and about life), she often said, “Show up and tell the truth.”  In other words, be present and open yourself up to give and receive.  This is easier said than done – in the dance studio or anywhere else in life – and Dylan does it every day when he walks into his classroom ready to listen, learn, share, imagine, and create.

I couldn’t be more proud of him for this perfect achievement.  (And kudos to me for being the driver.)
