    What Happens Now?

    I just finished a conversation with a colleague on the progressive movement. The policies and the politics and how we are, unfortunately, failing. Since the gubernatorial election in Wisconsin last week, I have found myself conflicted in trying to separate the me that is a voter and a tax payer and the me that has made a career of working in progressive politics. By the weekend, with Mitt Romney implying 'we don't need no stinkin' teachers' I have found myself with a little bit more resolve when it comes to what I, personally, would like to do with my life. You see for me, politics isn't just an every four years event and then I go back to whatever normal might be. Trite as this will sound; politics is something that I live and breathe. I can't just turn it off and go about my day because it's everywhere.

    More on all of this later as I know that I have been MIA thanks to politics of all shapes and sizes. For now I will leave you with the President's Weekly Address where he expressed the need for teachers and public employees. It's hard to believe that we are at a place where the necessity of educators needs to be justified.

    Discovering what you are meant to do and/or what you are willing to not do anymore is liberating.

    I love thinking of you prepping to fly.

    Strong, smart woman that you are, you'll soar.
