Those ever-attentive to such details may have noticed that this blog has a new title. Sort of.
I started this blog when I became head of school. At that time I rather foolishly assumed that it would have a small but rather captive readership within the school community. But people are really busy and don’t have the discretionary time to read blogs. And then a small number of other people started to read it and they were from all over.
I called the it “The Compass Point” because the compass is the long-time logo of Poughkeepsie Day School. (Hence the school’s sports and tech teams’ name – the Navigators). I was primarily interested in promoting the school and sharing its story, values, history and philosophy with a wider audience.
So the compass concept belongs to the school and not to me. And that means I am in search of a new blog name. I have a tagline taken from the warning labels of the fireworks of my childhood: “Light the blue touch paper” – words that then were often followed by “and retire immediately”.
Seems timely as it is fun to imagine lighting things up!
As for a new name … well, any good ideas? All suggestions welcome.
