Like most of my American friends, I will be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with my family.
But I would be remiss if I didn’t celebrate the fact that one of my students recited Mercutio’s Queen Mab speech from Romeo and Juliet today. It was wonderful, and I cried. That is a real accomplishment.
I also enjoyed discussing the philosophies of Ralph Waldo Emerson with my students. I am continually reminded just how transcendental Disney’s The Lion King is.
