Touch

Good evening, dear Readers!

What a busy week it has been! Can you believe I only got home an hour ago?! Sometimes life throws all kinds of things at you and gives you very little opportunity to catch your breath. But I am grateful for a full and fulfilling life!

As some of you may know, I’m a teacher and tomorrow, I bid farewell to a group of matriculants that have a very special place in my heart. We arrived at my current school at the same time. Them, as little grade 8s with high school ahead of them and me, a new teacher to the curriculum and to the school. In many ways, we grew up together in learning and tomorrow, they leave for the big bad world!

My hope for you tonight is that you know that no matter what walk of life you come from, no matter your occupation, no matter what you do for fun or where the universe decides to place you, you have an impact on people that you will not always see. Blieve me, you have, you are, and you will touch someone’s life! So by all means, live out loud!

I appreciate your dropping by and I trust you have a fantastic, full and fulfilling week ahead! We’ll see each other again on Sunday😘

Invigilation

Invigilation is a slow game of Pacman. There are, however, no winners;

Just teachers entrenched in those aisle

Picking up dropped pencils and adjusting facedown student cards- bored out of their minds

Knowing fully well that their only escape is a quiet classroom and a pile waiting for that red tick- Or red cross.

Students, stuck in their seats filling pages and pages with dates and sums and reasons in hopes that they will will be rewarded. Sometimes merely waiting for the declaration: “Pens down!”

Indeed, this game of Pacman holds us all hostage!

Better Than Me

No one knows how to lift my spirits better than me.Just put me behind the wheel and give me an adventure to embark on.

No one knows how to make my heart flutter better than me. Play me something beautiful, progressions with minors and husky voices and words that sing what I feel.

No one takes care of me better than me. Give me my matchbox flat, flavours to mix in a pot that nourish my belly and my soul.

No one calms me better than me. Make the room quiet and leave me to my own devices.

No one knows me better than me and no one loves me better than me because I’m all I’ve got…

Ahead

No alarm clock had a hand in waking her up this morning.The crack around her bedroom doorframe was the only indication that the day had begun. It is officially the first day of school break. As she stretched in bed, she thought of the day that stretched ahead. All the possibilities, all the choices that are hers to make lay ahead. It was gonna be a good day filled with little adventures. And she was looking forward to it.
