Overheard someone in a store the other day say, "So I said it right to the teacher's face." But I couldn't help but wonder if the moment was as momentous to the teacher as to this person. As a teacher, I couldn't help but wonder how many students felt they'd had a moment in my room that I wasn't even aware I was a part of. I've had students say shocking things in my room, but I'm not easily shocked, so I can't say that too much has left that strong of an impact.
So when I tell you that lately I'm dealing with some heavy stuff, I know it won't impact your life very much at all, and I'm okay with that. Just know, I'm still here, but life is a slog through a bog lately. Please forgive me for not being as active lately. I'm still writing and reading, but I've gone a little quiet lately as I consider a few life changes.
Thanks for understanding.
