I consider myself quite fortunate.
I have had some amazing students. They work hard, they struggle uphill when they must, they challenge themselves, and they go extra miles.
I am exhausted right now. It has been a spring of madness on the heels of an endless winter and an overbusy fall.
I'm also looking forward to having them go away for a little while: I can't wait to have some knitting, sewing, and cleaning time for myself.
Still breathing. That is, when they don't take my breath away.
Awe, I tell you.
