:: Trepidation… for some time off ::

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
— Annie Dillard

I have been spending the last few weeks in a frenzy of prepping new courses, teaching new courses and correcting new courses… all to say that the gruelling time that teachers spend on these tasks is wearisome and one of the rewards is to see the beautiful faces greeting you as you enter the class and the ah-hah moments when they get a concept that you explained. If these episodes in time did not happen, I am guessing that many teachers would just turn away and choose another venue. So here is my drawing for this night as we are watching the excellent British TV series “Luther”. The feeling of trepidation that I had today as I realized that in one week’s time, I would be on March break was totally awesome! Some time off to think about my family, friends and for painting -)
