School Days

One of the things that unifies humanity is our desire for education whether it be in the intellectual pursuit of knowledge, artisanal, hands-on crafting and production, scientific study and experimentation or in the fine and creative arts. There are many ways to attain our personal best and convening in person to celebrate our shared discoveries has always been central to ourlearning. May we keep courage in these days of personal distance and use the tools at our fingertips to continue the journey together until we can meet again.


School days, school days
Dear old golden rule days
‘Reading and ‘riting and ‘rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hick’ry stick
You were my queen in calico
I was your bashful barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate, "I love you, Joe"
When we were a couple o’ kids
