After all that has been happening in the cities the last few days, I am so glad and so thankful to be here, where all I can hear is the wind, my little girl singing as she plays and the combine harvesters at work. The news reports make me shiver as I imagine how it must feel to be in the thick of such hideous mind-numbing violence and lawlessness.
We are all pottering about the house doing our own little things, and every now again, we bump into each other and check in that all is ok.
Tonight I am teaching. I am nervous -- but excited too.
