Back to teaching...

My only resolution for 2011 is to stop complaining so much about my day job ;)

Here's a quote from Annie Dillard:

"Never, ever, get yourself into a situation where you have nothing to do but write and read. You'll go into a depression. You have to be doing something good for the world, something undeniably useful; you need exercise, too, and people." ("Notes for Young Writers")

'Nuff said!


  1. Love the picture of the typewriter and the quote from Annie Dillard! And that's why you are so well adjusted you come to ACIM, walk, and have twin teenagers, one tween, one husband (I think one?) and 3 cats - and so you aren't depressed. You don't have time.

    Off to my book group - my two best friends are refusing to go so I'm going to see why?

  2. That's a great resolution. Don't lose sight of the fact that you inspire your students to follow their hearts and listen to themselves and most importantly, to write. I'll miss seeing you everyday.

  3. ah, shucks. You made my day.

    And I'll watch for an email about bookclub ;)
