I've been away from this space for a week, a long time for me. I'm not short on ideas - there are several beginning of drafts waiting as well as a host of new ideas percolating. It's not even that time has been too tight because of other commitments. I just haven't had the brain space for this space.
This space is important to me. It helps me reflect on my classroom, my school, and education in general. It is a place to vent frustration at times and to celebrate at others. It offers connections to many from whom I learn. I miss it right now.
All aspects of my life feel swirly and out of control at the moment. I'm hoping that at least some of those will get back to behaving soon. Then I will get back here.
