What does it take?
After so many months - a post. I had forgotten my new year's resolution. Simply two things: 1. to write more 2. to try more - especially trying to be happy. How have I been doing while no longer consciously trying? Not as good. I have replaced happy with busy. Which is not to say that I am unhappy. Just, not focused on finding it or relishing it when it happened. Tonight, I am grading in my new house. For weeks, I have been focused on chips in the paint, problems with the table, and the relative lack of being unpacked with everything in its place. Tonight, I will focus on hot cocoa and improving students' essays. And on simply enjoying.
