where i always go--to work. it eats me up and spits me out and all i have energy left for is to spend time talking with Shuji and doing the usual routine.
Lots of stuff has been going on at work. Too many meetings, too much extra-curricular crap that makes me feel pulled in too many different directions. Summer is coming. I will get some rest, regroup and refocus.
I want to end on a happy note. These are the things that have made me smile lately:
a student's mum telling me that her daughter *loves* my class.
a student telling me she was really glad that she had been able to talk with me about a serious problem in her life and that it had made a difference.
a new song my cousin shared with me.
an old song I ran across that kick-started my heart.
a boy coming to show me a chrysalis.
