Wreaths of Smiles and Leaves

IS THERE ANY GREATER HONOR than to be beloved by children?

A random thought on realizing this is a teaching day. Mind you, I’m no Dr. Seuss or Mother Goose — that’s beloved — but I can definitely see why they did what they did. There’s something about watching the light come on, in each child’s particular way, that makes the Hebrew/religious teaching experience so rewarding: seeing this happen in connection with Deep Things. I have a friend who teaches science in a public school and who relates similar wonders. They’re not that far apart, science and religion … at least, when they start with or enhance awe and curiosity
