Today is the last day of school. It's the end of my twenty-first year of teaching. Every year is the same, I wonder what else I could have done and I remember the great successes. I spend as much time as I can on the final day, looking into their faces and remembering. They move on, but a part of each of them stays with me...has changed me. It's the end of the school year.
Today marks a beginning too. I can announce the first writing workshop dates for my Selah Writing Retreats. There will be two retreats on the evenings of July 13th and 14th at Zephaniah Farm Vineryard. Come for one night or both! Sign up NOW at Selah Writing Retreats.
I can't help but think of my favorite quote from the movie, Hope Floats:
"...beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will, too..."
