Another *academic year DONE.
I just turned in my final paper, and it feels so good.
This year has been one adventure, but the greatest successes of all have been the moments when I feel I belong. For the first time in two big years, I feel that I finally found a place and felt good here. The feeling doesn’t last forever, but it happens periodically and it’s always welcomed.
There is still no TIME now that it’s all over, but life is good (*minus the constant cold, rainy weather).
Tomorrow we leave for Pennsylvania to rest, read, and recover from the madness of a long school year! For some of us, this is our last chance to prepare for moving, graduating, or traveling and it’s going to be epic. It’s the first time we’re all together and don’t have to pack tents, sleeping bags, and unnecessarily warm clothes.
About to go to my last day of work until August and then. . .more packing. . .
But, for NOW, it’s time to focus on getting back HERE!
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.” – Gilda Radner
THANKS EVERYONE FOR MAKING THIS SEASON OF LIFE WHAT IT HAS BEEN.
I’m forever grateful.
