What does this say about education? What does it say, that the
students always want to sit far away from the teacher?
Hmmm, that's an excellent question!
This afternoon, my second meeting was better. I learned at least two or three things I'll try this year, but that wasn't my favorite part. My favorite part was seeing that my friend Tim was still using the clipboard he made this summer in my introduction activity. It made me smile!
More meetings tomorrow! Wish me luck!!

How true that is! Tonight, I climbed into bed and glanced out the window. The window that usually has the blinds drawn, yet not tonight. Anyway, as I look, I see the full, bright moon. I remember that Dad used to tell me that no matter how far away we are, we are always beneath the same moon. I smiled as I remembered that conversation. As I said, "I love you, Dad." Lightning brightened the sky surrounding that same moon. My breath caught and I froze. Again I spoke, "Dad, is that you?" And once again, lightning struck. Literally.
Heaven! Maybe instead of being beneath the moon, Dad is sitting on top of it. No matter where he is, I know that he's with me.
That feels so good...so true...so absolute!

It doesn't get better than this.
I felt like I was seven, exploring the woods for the first time. Each stone led me to a new discovery, a new feeling, a new place. The outdoor theater hosted a waterfall with Mary and her son, Baby Jesus, looking on. We watched the water together. The return hike was uphill, and the humid air captured my breath every chance it got. This required more stops on the way home. I sat in the Trellis of the Anunciation. Wrote, sipped, breathed, walking again to the gazebo. There I watched a orange headed spider search for a way into the screened haven. Finally, to my temporary home at the Appalachian Lodge. Here, I am alone. My friends are outside the door.
Here I sit, writing about them.

I must go and finish laundry, putting songs on my ipod, and organizing books and papers form this summer!

For now, my decision remains to write regardless of audience. I write for me.
But, I hope YOU read!!
School, Summer Institute, School...I am in between these experiences and that feels...in between. Preparing to clean, pack, and vacation. Going to a spa!! For the first time, this is a vacation by myself. Relaxing and quiet, with LOTS of time to write. What will I do without contact to the outside world for two whole days? Exciting to discover...
