what boat do you need to burn?
a testimony to your future
No desire to go back. Focused forward. New journey, new way of getting there, new results.
Usually we want to do more of what got us to where we are. There is safety in repetition. Familiarity, best practices, proven techniques. I think the Bright Future craves more daring from us.
a testimony to the future
I bless the path that showed itself to me
astute, blind, courageous, clever, faithfully
I forged and floated
I testify to the utility of all that was then.
I testify to where I now stand: I AM here.
I testify to my capacity to craft
new ways of getting where I want to go.
I am the journey.
I am the path.
I am the destination.
If I have one boat that I want to burn is the safety blanket of working in higher education. In a way it represents everything I want and I can't get now and all the fears about moving forward and staying put.
