If I were to assign a grade to my performance as a Leadership Los Alamos student, it might be a C. I have cut class twice and snuck out of class early. Plus my attitude has been slightly less than stellar. In fact, the night before the last session I engaged in a mental tantrum. I whined to myself that I had too much to do, the session started too early, it was going to be held in a location too far away.
It didn’t do any good. The fact remained an agreement had been struck – I had consented to report on this year’s program for the newspaper, come hell or high water. Besides, as I have learned countless times before, sometimes making decisions should not be based on what you want, but what is right.
So I ceased my mental foot stomping, set the alarm for 6 a.m. and pulled down the large Leadership Los Alamos binder from the closet.
I am so glad that I did.
If I ever considered the ideal classroom, it might be the Valles Caldera. I’ve seen the national preserve from the car window as the vehicle whizzed by the huge expanse of green fields that gave way to a carpet of conifers. Once I even studied the night’s sky through telescopes on the preserve land but I never knew that much about Valles.
