I have so much to share with all of you. It has almost been too fast to blog it all!
Meaning of May
May is so full of meaning … graduation, senior slide shows, annuals, awards, honors, goodbyes. Twenty years a go today I had my last day of high school… it seems like yesterday.
I want to grab today by the hair and tell her that she can't run out the door again and yet she runs and slams the door, just leaving me with a few wispy filaments of memory in my grey matter!
I look at my three children and will have two in middle school next year! I remember when they were born. It is like when I raised a little bird and had to let it go as a child… I want to keep them and yet I must let them go so that they may fly.
Madness of May
The dog was run over, the horizon project has taken all of my time, efolios, projects, assignments from other teachers which invariably become my projects too! Programs, events, exhibitions, recitals, it is almost too fast.
I find myself breathless at the end of the day, believing that if I can stop hyperventilating that I can finally sleep and yet knowing that in the frenzy there is a certain beauty!
