A few weeks ago as I was sitting in an Education Week class, I noticed a strange thing. At some point during the lecture my mind began to wander and I began to slowly look around the room. There were probably about 200 or so students and I observed the most amazing pattern. About every 4th person was wearing some shade of purple. I kid you not! Even the carpet and the chair cushions were purple. This was indeed a a serendipity moment. I do love purple.
