“yes, you are creative and in slow, languid times, creativity peers out of your soul like a field mouse from its burrow at night.”

“spring up oh well.
within my soul.
spring up oh well
and make me whole.
spring up oh well
and give to me
that life abundantly.”

live an abundant life today!
friday plans? we have a half day with the students and then teacher work time for the rest. i’ll probably come home and read and watch tv tonight.

“there is nothing
prettier in the
whole wide world
than a girl
in love
with every breath she takes.”
-atticus poetry

highlight of my day: i had my students write me a letter and several of them put that i didn’t care what other people thought of me and they loved how happy i was all of the time. it’s funny what kids see. i see that i’m tired and i’m struggling through the day to be enthusiastic about everything, but they don’t see that and i’m glad. •

“balance. it was all about balance. that had been one of the first things that she had learned: the centre of the seesaw has neither up nor down, but upness and downness flow through it while it remains unmoved. you had to be the centre of the seesaw so the pain flowed through you, not into you. it was very hard. but she could do it!” ― terry pratchett

find balance today.
qotd: how do you normally find balance in your life?

“you know you're only bored if you're boring."
-the miseducation of cameron post

i used to ask my mom all the time how people are bored. i just didn’t understand it. i was a reader and if ever i didn’t have something to do, i read. •
i finally finished the miseducation of cameron post and i was kind of disappointed. to me, the book dragged on and on. i hope the movie brings it to life a little better.

have a great monday!

“we do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
-e.e. cummings

believe in yourself today!

what are you up to/reading today?
i am finally going to finish the miseducation of cameron post, clean, catch up on shows.
