Blog Title

I finally got around to putting the poem here that is the source of the title of my blog. My poem "At A Time Of Having Too Much" has the following lines in it:
     And there was a lot of chaff.

     Children playing in the leaves of fall

     We scattered it around us and over all the fields

     With the help of the wind.

The poem was inspired by my student teaching experiences but the ideas apply to many different aspects of life.  All that we create is ultimately temporary, just like our time on earth. We have to admit that we are imperfect and rather unimportant in the world before we can truly begin to make a difference in this world. It is one of the defining human characteristics.
