We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness. Thich Nhat Hanh
Last night at a party with teachers and significant others from the after school program where I work, an eclectic group of adults mingle, or attempt to. Artists, retired teachers, people who like kids, people who are like kids, an international politics professor, a librarian. I watch, feeling connected to all…the passionate ones, the quiet ones, the silly ones, the clever ones, the interested ones.
The book I am writing is about experiences I recognize, even as I struggle to not make it a story about me.
