It is nice to wrap up another week in the trenches. The students were great, they got a lot done, the grades were good to pleasant, and our Friday school meetings were acceptably engaging. Taking all that into consideration, I'm still supremely overjoyed the weekend has arrived.
I start this evening's posts with the photo above. I found it online. I read it. I thought about it for a moment and answered Yes, of course I'd read the book. Who wouldn't read a book that offered a road map detailing your future? No sooner had that thought crossed my mind, I found myself rethinking my answer. This time, the full ramifications of what it meant to know ahead of time everything that would take place in my future, came to mind. Would I really want to know?
If the future were changeable, then I would read the book to the end. I would learn from my obvious mistakes and correct them - to change the future. If the future were unchangeable, then I would leave the book undisturbed and continue down destiny's uncertain, untrodden path.
"The only way to start the weekend," I heard you whisper to yourself.
