Where have I been? Practising resilience…

In a whirlwind of chaos, that’s where. And missing you, big time. You’re on my mind all the time.

Talk about resilience. I’m working on that, too. (I have two posts in the works, but somehow life keeps getting in the way. This has been a week of constant distractions and interruptions. All of a sudden. Go figure.)

So, here is another postcard from me to you ~ between exams for my students today. I’m really on the run.

For the rest of the week, I’m finalizing marks. Please, never underestimate the work teachers do on their own time.

Plus there’s some curious interest in this blog and several bittersweet farewells at The Toronto Star. Must not cry over dried up milk, but carry on ~ that’s my attitude and that’s why you’re here with me. We’re the future! Right now…

I’ll have a lot more time for you next week!

So please, I hope you will be patient. Things will settle down. I’m not far away, just preoccupied and adjusting to a new blogging routine.

Also, training for the “Resilience Olympics.” So, away I go. :)

Off to my next exam at another campus.

Speak soon. Promise. These are slightly crazy days, but after all, at “Coming Out Crazy” that to be expected, right?

  1. In the midst of all the craziness, remember to take a little bit of time out just for you to relax and take stock.

    Best of luck in your Resilience Olympics!

    • Dear Riayn,
      Thank you for your thoughtful and wise advice.
      I often neglect taking care of myself, when there are so many others to care for, including my students. And relaxation? I don’t know if I remember how!
      Last night, for the first time in weeks, I slept for more than four hours and didn’t not wake up at 4:30 a.m. to check “my baby” ~ then, somehow stay here. This is the worse thing for my health. I need sleep. Everyone does. Sleep heals. And part of my particular “illness” is getting so tired I begin believing I don’t need to sleep.
      That hasn’t happened in years, but I can inadvertently fall into the habit if I have lots of things on my mind, as I do right now.
      Anyway, I send you gratitude and wishes for peace.
      You are very kind.
