Live Life Daring Greatly

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and

Tribute to my grandmother

my immaculate The culmination of years in that work-wrought smile, The glass of history veiling knowing eyes, A skin so thin that blood bleeds and seeps through, Teeth broken by gnawing upon chains of oppression, Loving so much, to give meaning to an unknown life, Nurturing descendents with food and money you had not, Walking upon meager foundations, never knowing enough to run, Conceptualizing the sea but not the right to swim, And to read as but a luxury, beyond the means of others to think you worthy, Existing amongst the dust from which life first came, Unloved, and unrequited

It is good for people who want personal improvement, have a court requirement, or need to satisfy an employment training request (e.g. Bill 168). The class usually runs from 9am to 5pm on Saturdays. The class runs at least once a month. You get a letter and a certificate if you need to show it in court or to your employer. You get a course manual and lunch is included too. It’s fun,
