The Yoga of Chaos

Three groups of students: 18, 16 and 20. Grades 4, 5 and 6. We filed into a gymnasium – floors were not swept and without windows. Everything was different. We were meeting on a different day of the week in a new location and two days after the clocks got changed, shorting them of an
