The other day my cousin, Glenda, mentioned Glenn Gould to me in an email. I told her that I wasn't familiar with him and she replied, "You haven't lived if you have not experienced the greatness of Glenn Gould..." I asked her to send a link to me and I was amazed when I listened to him play. So moving. So beautiful.
In our writing workshop , I am using the book, "A Place for Wonder" by Georgia Heard & Jennifer McDonough. Today we looked at the question, What Are Your Three Wonders? While my students were stretched out comfortably around the room to think about their wonders, I remembered Glenn Gould and I played his music softly in the background. It was "wonderful". Then we gathered to share our wonders.
