The Eclipse of the Masters

The spark extinguished.

Expecting and demanding our

Children to follow the well-beaten path,

Learning to accept “we’ve always done it like this,”

Inhibits and illegitimatizes the child’s spark. It is to throw a

Pall over their passion and their very being – blocking their personal

Spark of individuality and inspirational ideas and -

Eclipsing the potential of those who could have been the masters and geniuses of our future.

  • I knowwww right! Instead, we should take the time to explain to them why should it be done in a certain way. Loved your Acrostic!
