All The Diamonds - Bruce Cockburn

I spent four years studying at Briercrest. Four year of life that I seem to tell people these days that I am not paid for. No credit to me financially in my teaching career. But I often take the time to tell people of how one evening, I was asked by a fellow student to go for a walk in the chilled autumn evening to his car in the student parking lot to listen to a song. A song that had added colour to his life.
This moment of intentional sharing has paid dividends over the last 20 years that have likely been more valuable than any monetary compensation for my years of study.
The song was All The Diamonds by Bruce Cockburn.
