Brief, have been having phenomenal experiences in and around community - the weather has been ethereal, encouraging all kinds of swimming and porch living. The power of the water always draws me in. I must have been a seal in another life, truly.
We were lucky to also have the chance to visit the community at their summer gathering set up 9 KM out of town. I was able to meet many of the students’ parents and families as well as some always inviting elders and others who spend time in the community and nation.
The first week of school has been more productive and uplifting than I could have imagined.
I’m re-energized. The students are re-energized. The teachers are re-energized. We will work hard to keep this attitude and excitement (these things are contagious, you know) through the fall and the rain and the sleet and the silliness as it tends to arise.
In Montréal for a few moments to write my final exams and then back up again.
Returning has felt so natural. Missing it already (although the internet sure is speedy here).
