Die-hard SoulPancake fans will know that the task I am referring to in this post is actually Sidewalk Scribe (pg.5). Unfortunately, due to weather conditions, I could not find a clean or dry sidewalk to chalk up.
Step 1: Sum up your personal philosophy on life.
Step 2: Acquire chalk.
Step 3: Find
pavement a blackboard.
Step 4: Bust out your pseudo-inner-vandal and scrawl your message for the
world next class to see.
After my evening class I wandered into an empty classroom with a large empty board and a big piece of chalk (don’t you just hate the little pieces?).
I had spent the previous class period looking up inspirational quotes appropriate for the classroom. This one by Johann Gottfried Von Herder, a German philosopher (and heartthrob), caught my eye.
“Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant, there is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.”
I’m feeling that Johann.
I am hoping that the sleepy students who walked into that room at 8:00 am saw my work and felt motivated and empowered. Or the teacher promptly erased the message, replacing it with POP QUIZ, which I am sure would have the adverse effect. I guess I’ll never know…
Now, it’s your turn, find a sidewalk or blackboard and scribble away!
Comment with a quote that describes YOUR personal philosophy, and I’ll scribe it somewhere on campus. Looking forward to hearing from you!
