Among our conversation about standardized testing, debate teachers, spam (the Hawaiian steak), healthy eating, and revelation, we chatted about Winfrey Point last night.
Unofficially, a good chunk of us were in support of #SaveWinfreyPoint.
The good news is – plans have been scrapped to turn some of the fields into boring parking lots. Unfair Park covers the news here.
On a personal note, White Rock Lake is one of the reasons that my wife and I treasure our part of Dallas. We love the Dallas Arboretum too. We are members. I’m grateful that there seems to be a possibility to work all of this out where everyone wins. I’ll repeat what Rev. Dr. Ron Somers-Clark taught us in our congregational workshop about family systems theory – “the only way to get a system unstuck is to have an adventure.” I love the terminology, because it reminds me of my childhood fantasy to live out the Goonies movie. But seriously, when it seems like all options have disappeared and nothing can change, that’s the moment to really go outside of the box and let your creativity fly.
In the case of this issue around White Rock Lake, I have hope that the solution may end up being awesome to everybody.
