Lupin, Camellia and Living Well

1    They had just finished watering at the garden centre and the lupin leaves were holding onto the droplets as lupins are inclined to do.

3   I love these words and just though I’d share them with you!

“You’ve gotta’ dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.
(And speak from the heart to be heard.)”

They were spoken by William W. Purkey, a man who received many accolades for his outstanding teaching.  He used to end speeches with this poem. I wish I had known it when I was teaching – I would have followed his example and closed my classes with it too!
