This is my 400th published post for The Art of Education.  When I began this exercise on July 21, 2010, I wasn't sure where this would go or who would possibly visit.  What I did know was that I was going to use this platform to share my ideas, thoughts, reflections, and suggestions about education and leadership.

Looking back over my earlier posts, I clearly see myself trying to find a voice.  I am proud of those earlier posts, not because they were particularly well written, but because they are a record that at one time, I summoned up the courage to ignore my lizard brain and pressed "publish."

Writing The Art of Education continues to be one of my most enjoyable exercises.  Without it, I wouldn't have connected with so many generous people who care deeply about education and leadership.  I would not have written any of my books.  I would not have the confidence that comes with realizing your voice matters. 

I'm not sure where The Art of Education is going.  Looking back over the first 400 posts, I assume it will go where my attention, interests, and experiences take it.  What I do know is that I have no plans to shut down any time soon.

Therefore, thank you for listening during my 2+ year/400 post reflection.  I hope your time here has been time well spent and that you will continue to visit often.
