- Fixing a printer with my daughter. The look on her face when it actually worked.
- Listening to old Built to Spill songs, especially the long ones.
- Reading Charles Portis novels after 5. Just a few pages at a time to draw a line between the workday and the rest of the day.
- That being home all day means seeing all the trees and flowers coming into bloom. That each day the progress is noticeable, although I never noticed that before.
- Turning on the television at night and watching whatever is on for a few minutes.
- New Waxahatchee music called St. Cloud.
- Talking on the phone with people.
- Texting a lot more with certain friends.
- Having lunch each day with my family.
- Hearing my kids (through the walls) talking with their teachers and their friends.
- Student thinking making itself visible in new ways.
- Asking how can I? about 5 times a day and usually finding a good enough way.
- Emailing with Dan about music.
- Chicken dinner, Wednesday night.
- Starting a new, small writing project with Eric and Reshan.
- Waking up slowly. Not having to rush through the morning just to rush through the day.
- The voices of people showing up in all kinds of new ways.
- My daughter’s advisor saying through a videoconference: “keep growing your friendships, your creativity, your hearts.”
- That good enough is good enough.
One thought on “This week was hard, but this week I loved anyway . . .”
Love this! Thanks!
