That Woody Harrelson Song
In the 80s, Thursday nights were often spent watching Cheers. The infamous Kelly song was an on-going joke for anyone who ever met anyone named Kelly, and "Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly" became a chorus that was hummed in offices, schools, and bars.
So, I played a section of this yesterday to honor writer Kelly Gallagher before he presented to students and teachers involved in the Connecticut Writing Project. Kelly Gallagher is a simply a great man, teacher, thinker, and communicator. The last two days learning from him has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience and a tremendous way to kick off a new career in a new state. It was an honor to work with him.
And so, today is Saturday. The sun is out. It is a weekend. Go outside and play!
