A Reason to Rhyme by kristin

July 23, 2010 at 10:33 am 1 comment

Since our enrollment team (and I) have started blogging regularly, we use a set of cards, called The Observation Deck: A Toolkit for Writers, by Naomi Epel. You draw a card, and there’s a word or phrase to inspire you for that day’s post. Things like Create a Sacred Space, Feed Your Senses, Breathe, or my word for today: Rhyme. Well, that brought me to the fact that we recently had a company- wide poetry contest. We could choose to write Haiku or Limericks, and I chose both. My winning entry was about green juice:

Green drink sip slowly

Nurture body mind and soul

Plant spirit sweetness

And I had written a bunch of Limericks about my coworkers in the enrollment office, so I thought it would be fun to share these little poems about some of my favorite people!

Mary Sandkamp

Our charming Mary

There was a young woman named Mary

Who never could be quite contrary

She had questions galore

And we’ll always adore

That charming young woman named Mary


Student Services Manager

There was a good lady named Karen

She often appeared to be darin’

She’s crazy about Max

And never is lax

That diligent lady named Karen

Mila Queen Mary Elizabeth

Mary Elizabeth loved to drink Mila

You know that she never did spilla

Drop of that draught

You know that she’s hot

For that splendid fine sip of de Mila

Amanda Durrigan

"The Hurrican" Durrigan

Amanda the fabulous Durrigan

Works as fast as a hurrican’

She loves both her kids

And works out to vids

Amanda (no middle name) Durrigan


Inga is awesome!

Inga is at her computer

Artistic and fast as a scooter

She accomplishes more in a day

Than anyone can say

Inga the whiz on computer

Hilloah and friends
Hilloah and Friends

The name of miss H ain’t Hawaiian

Her hair is pure white-no dyein

Her name starts with Hay

She reminds us each day

Our darlin’ Hilloah ain’t lyin’

In the photo with Hilloah are friend Chelsea and Amber West, whose blogs you’ve read here. Amber is moving to the Bay Area, so she won’t be on the enrollment team anymore, but she’ll be coming back as a teacher to finish her Living Light Internship Program. These are just some the people who have been working hard to take care of all of our Living Light students. And they are also enrolling attendees in the Living Light Chef Showcase: Hot Chefs, Cool Kitchen coming up August 27-29, and streaming live online. Don’t miss it!
