As much as I needed a break, these last two days being reunited with my darling students has rejuvenated my soul in the most miraculous ways! Even though I can scarcely breathe and it feels as if a five ton leopard is lying atop my chest and sharpening its claws in my sweater, I feel alive again. I will never be able to completely put into words what those lovely children make me feel or how remarkable it is to find my "calling" in this wild and stupid existence. I love my life when it means that I am necessary.
