Sent by John Giunta: When I was teaching at the Rock Creek International School, they used the International Baccalauriate program, there were rubrics in place that were useful in assessing our learning and teaching. Here is a list that fascinated me, it is part of another little project of mine.
A drop of dew falls on a leaf
It quivers and gleams
And then slides onto the next leaf
pulsating not knowing what shape to take
slipping again onto another leaf
moving only slightly and again drops to the leaf below
just before the sun comes up
it reaches the last leaf

This is a music performance I gave at a Unity Church in Fairfax, Virginia on New Year’s Eve, 2005 using my collection of 13 antique Tibetan Singing Bowls.
