Intersections: The End Is Near

May 17, 2017 by Bill Ivey

As I prepare to spend our last Morning Meeting planning out both Founders’ Day (a special day off from middle school classes planned by and for the students) and the end of year trip, Lily happens to overhear that the Thursday night Middle School Rock Band is looking for a new lead singer for “Paradise.” She brightens, leans forward and says, “I’ll do it.” I don’t have a very strong sense of her as a singer, and I know we only have one, maybe two rehearsals before the next show, but I do have the instinct she wouldn’t step up if she didn’t have some level of confidence she could pull it off. I smile and say, “Thank you. Our next rehearsal is Thursday night six days from now.”
