Reconceptualizing Physical Education
TO JANICE PATRICIA KILBORN
Mom, you were always most comfortable talking with people and being outside—playing softball, picking apples, fishing, sailing, playing in the garden, planting flowers (with or without shoes on). Your priorities were your relationships with people, the land, the water, the plants, and animals. You passed on your knowledge through your hands (and your big feet), your heart, your smile, your laugh, your touch, your actions, and your words. And you continue to share your wisdom—your lessons are found in your way of being, the way you lived your life—this is your energy that flows within and around me now. If I pay attention, it is always there.
Mom, you said to me in May 2010,
“Live each moment—live life now, Michelle.”
I practice this every day and it is how this book came to be.← vii | viii →
