I just installed a two-story-tall ballooney Jack & the Beanstalk in the Atrium of the Lake Forest Country Day School. It will be enjoyed for two weeks until the annual fundraising event on March 3. This year’s theme is “Once Upon a Time”. I’ve always enjoyed the Jack & the Beanstalk story and more so, especially, as an adult. Since it was as an adult that I, like Jack, took a big risk and traded in my “cow” for a few “seeds” and armed with little more than faith took a great big chance. Same with the classic Robert Frost poem ‘The Road Not Taken’, about those two roads that diverged in a wood, one road not used as much as the other. There are those times when we are all faced with whether we should get rid of the cow for a few seeds, or take the road less travelled by…and I shout out “Yes! Yes!” …and it will make all the difference!
