Slow down and make time

As I wrote the title for this blog, I chuckled and said, “Teacher, teach yourself.” If there is anyone who needs to heed what I write and read, ’tis I. 

Today is the birthday of the artist Georgia O’Keeffe, she of the amazing paintings of flowers.

One of her most often cited quotes is, ““Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time, and to see takes time — like to have a friend takes time.”

Today’s Advocacy Lesson is: Make time to build relationships; so much of advocacy is about connections.  Spend time with the ones with whom you advocate.

Send a note, make a call, meet over coffee, and if it’s coffee and pie….call  me.
