I have begun counting the days on the calendar now.  The end of school is in sight.  It has been a very good year and fulfilling in many ways, but it has been a little too filled with extras; it has kept me too busy in one realm which has prevented me from being active in others.  It threw me off my gait.  I guess there are times when we need to be thrown off balance a bit in order to appreciate the ordinary or the usual; we need to be kept from the familiar in order to appreciate it more.  I’m pining for it now.  Ready to be at home again with myself.
