Word #69 of 100 – Tigers

Word #69. Tigers.

Several times a year we gather new Acton owners together for their orientation. Part of the day, pre-COVID, includes spending time in our studios observing the Eagles at work and play. We then sit in a circle after all the young people have left campus and share lessons learned from the day.

One of the new owners, a long time educator and researcher, shared his reflection:

“It’s as if all my life I’ve been observing caged tigers, believing I understood them. Today for the first time I saw the magnificent creatures living free. Free tigers are not the same as caged tigers and I will never forget the difference.”

This is why we do what we do: free tigers are not the same as caged tigers.
