Wisdom from Dolly

This morning I got a tweet with a quote from Dolly Parton. She said, “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” Now I don’t know what Ms. Parton had in mind as to what is rainbow and what is rain, but it reminded me of something I’ve been teaching in my classes for as long as I remember. I made a You Tube Video of it, and I hope you enjoy it. It’s a bit more serious than my last video. Please let me know what you think.

On an entirely different topic, tomorrow is a big day for me. I am going to conduct improv exercises to develop a sense of community in the incoming class of Master of Public Health Students at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. I’m sure that if it’s successful, you’ll read about it here. If not, well you may read about it here anyway, because as I have said before, it’s healthy to celebrate failure.
