Since this school year started, I have not been able to fully shake the feeling that I'm playing hookie. It's really no wonder that Ferris Bueller has been hanging out in my brain a bit.
He usually chimes in when I'm feeling particularly blissful with, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
My teacher brain sends John Dewey to support Ferris with his, "We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience."
With similar notions in mind, when my twins were born, I started a blog
When we moved into a house full of projects, I started a blog.
When I started a photography business while simultaneously taking a year off from teaching and maximizing my presence with my kids, I tried really hard NOT to start a blog, but blog I must.
This blogging ritual has always helped me to sink deeper into my days, to recognize more meaning, and to remember.
If you care to know what I'm up to with this whole photography gig, check in here once in a while.
For now I'm off to fling open my curtains and think, "How could I possibly be expected to handle school on a day like this?"
