I made myself late for a meeting by stopping to take a photo of these lime green leaves through the flyscreen - they looked so good! I guess it comes under the adage of "stop and smell the roses". We rush around and don't really notice the little things. I'm always tolerant of the absent-minded kids in my class, because I realise that they are probably thinking of a million interesting things at once. It's my challenge to make my lessons interesting enough to engage their minds. The most absent-minded of all are the gifted and/or creative thinkers- if you are one of those people, be sure to give yourself time to think. Real life will wait for you to return!
