Snow in November

snowBy Dr. Debra Colley

Yes, in the midst of the chaos of the November snow storm,  this Dean went outside to make snow angels!  Periodically, we are reminded that our very best plans and task lists will unexpectedly change and that there are some things in life over which we have very little,  if any,  control.  Six to seven feet of snow on a Tuesday will do that to a person.   Our ability to navigate unforeseen circumstances,  chaos,  and change is an important attribute – whether these are small circumstances or those which seem overwhelming at the time.

As the semester begins to wind down and the anticipation of the holiday begins,  take time to stop for a moment – to make snow angels – to navigate the moments over which we have no control and think about the things in life which are most important of all.  Perhaps the snow storm in November was this reminder for many of us.

  1. This is great, Dr. Colley!! Love the tho’t of you making snow angels!!! That was quite a lot of snow for you’all, and again we were blessed with very little. Hope all is well with you and COE. Good report re: Vietnamese students at NU, which you were a part of.

    Will be stopping by next week to see the new abode and hope to see you.
