"This poem just tries to capture a moment in time."
by Eavan Boland
Things are getting ready
out of sight.
Stars and moths.
And rinds slanting around fruits.
But not yet.

I've been thinking about the importance of capturing moments in time.
My principal joined my class for a science experiment this week.
He watched and listened and questioned and took notes.
When it was time for him to leave, he held my eyes when he told the whole class that the big lesson he had learned was to closely observe what's happening right in front of you. And be ready to record.
