Cycle of life

It makes me happy to know that life is a cycle. I like that I can anticipate new beginnings. I get bored easily so I like change.

I am also comforted by the fact that nothing stays the same. 

If I am unhappy, the cycle of life will keep rolling and soon the situation will change. Nothing lasts forever. 

If I am content- yeah, it’s a good feeling and I’ll milk the moment for everything it’s worth. 

Today change came for me- 

Summer vacay slipped away

New school year began. 

Into my classroom I retreated to begin a new year for my students.

I am sad the summer is over. I so enjoyed the rest, relaxation, retreat, family, travel, and long lazy days. I absolutely took full advantage of every minute: read many books, spaced out on full moons and magnificent sun rises, took many walks, sat for long hours with friends and family, slept when I wanted to, and rejoiced because I am a teacher and I am in love with my work!  

But now it’s time unpack the boxes I packed in May. Time to slap educational maps and charts on walls. Time to put together lesson plans. Time to anticipate the faces of my students appearing at the door to my classroom.

That will happen in just a week.

WOW! Where did the time go?
