As I recall, tomorrow is Valentine's Day! I will be baking cookies...after teaching...and then watching volleyball. I am so proud of my husband and his 7th graders, who won the Intercity volleyball tournament this weekend!
More invitational play tomorrow. Tonight they played one of the local teams they'd defeated in the weekend tournament, winning again. The 8th graders also won, defeating a team that contained two of their teammates from last year, due to redistricting and a new junior high school. Bittersweet for everyone, harder for the losing team. But a good match, excellent play all around.
Busy lately with the freelance editing & teaching, and glad & grateful for this! Somehow getting by and getting over the blues....
"You must change your life," said Rilke. So that's what I keep doing. I've been an encyclopedia editor, a poetry editor, an actor and director, a library clerk, and an assistant professor of English. Now I'm a freelancer, work part time in a library, blog "eight days a week," study the random, tend perennials, and listen to birdsong.
