Dear Headwaters Community,
As we begin 2021, I invite you to read "Dawn Revisited," a poem by Rita Dove. May we individually and collectively approach the new year as a second chance--a chance to reconnect and rebuild, a chance to be "blown open/to a blank page," and a chance to "get up and see."
Imagine you wake up
with a second chance. The blue jay
hawks his pretty wares
and the oak still stands, spreading
glorious shade. If you don't look back,
the future never happens.
How good to rise in sunlight,
in the prodigal smell of biscuits -----
eggs and sausage on the grill.
The whole sky is yours
to write on, blown open
to a blank page. Come on,
shake a leg! You'll never know
who's down there, frying those eggs,
if you don't get up and see.
Thank you for creating community together, especially during the most challenging days of 2020. We wish all of our families (new and old), students, alumni, and all friends of the school a healthy, life-affirming, and prosperous new year.
On behalf of my colleagues and friends at Headwaters, we wish you and yours a warm and joyous New Year. We look forward to seeing students back on Tuesday, January 5th.
Enjoy the rest of winter break,
Head of School
