Dreams and Bones are what we’re made of

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – David Mallet is a folk singer and song writer whose name you may or may not know. Originally from Maine, he lived in Nashville for many years but returned to his home state in 1997. His signature theme is called “Garden Song” and contains the line, “We are made of dreams and bones.” Somehow this describes the human condition as only a poet can.

When educating a child, one has to always keep in mind the dual side of our existence on this planet. It’s not uncommon when you are working diligently on some concept to be interrupted by a kindergartener or first grader who claims dramatically that he is bleeding and be shown a pinprick at the end of a tiny finger. The intellect and physical life of a child are always interconnected.

Education curriculum needs to go back to the basics.

Greatest Gifts of All

 

Greatest_GiftClarksville, TN – Christmas is the time of year when we should give some serious thought to the process of giving and what it really means to show our love to others.

I suspect that if most of us tried to remember the best gifts we’ve ever received, we’d find that many of them didn’t necessarily cost a great deal of money. Instead they had a lovely share of thoughtfulness behind them.

One of the gifts I received that I’ll never forget was from a blind man who sat for several hours at his tape recorder and taped for me music he believed I’d enjoy and some of his own words about what my friendship for him had meant. Another gift I’ll never forget came from a student and her mother who made a CD of favorite Christmas songs for me. I listen to that CD in my car every Christmas because it has so many classics like Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” and James Taylor’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Other gifts I’ve received are on a different scale.

APSU student Davey Edmaiston promotes music education in Washington, D.C.

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In July, Austin Peay State University music education student Davey Edmaiston boarded an airplane for the first time. If he was nervous, the Troy, Tennessee, native probably calmed himself by thinking about the importance of his trip. In a few hours, he’d land in Washington, D.C., to ask members of the U.S. Congress to make music education a priority for American school children.

“I’d never been anywhere out of the state before. First plane ride and everything. My mom was pretty scared,” Edmaiston said. “But we got to meet with senators and House representatives and talk about the Every Child Achieves Act, which identifies music as a core-curricular so every student has access to music.”
