We move through the days and weeks, the months and the years and we learn lessons that we aren’t always conscious of.
It’s amazing how certain things help you to put issues into perspective.
This past Wednesday I taught my first class. Despite being nervous as hell, I pulled it off. I have a good group of eager students and it felt great to be back in the classroom again after all these years in this capacity. Sure, there have been plenty of bumps along the way… that always happens.
Now I face the unknown before I’m back in the classroom. Less than two months ago I went to the doctor for routine stuff and Tuesday morning I have to have a procedure that will likely consist of a biopsy. So please at least cross your fingers for me. As a nurse in family practice I have referred dozens for this and more than 90% come back okay. My mind keeps straying from one outcome to the opposite outcome completely because, as an author, there is always the what-if?
It’s always there. Once that is done, I will head back into the classroom and hopefully have just as strong a performance.
That’s life for you!
As for politics… well, we had a lesson this week and each will take our own thoughts to our graves!
Lastly, love… well, it is what it is. I will continue to write, when I can get back to it, and there will always be romance! It is what gets us through our days and those moments when we need the most support.
I have been in an incredible amount of pain since Wednesday. I hope that it’s not a side effect of teaching but a result of the stress that I have been carrying around. Between the teaching and the procedure, I could probably be a string on a violin or guitar! I go to the chiropractor on Wednesday morning so hopefully he will be able to resolve some of my issues because the main stresses will then be gone and it will be a waiting game for the pathology report.
So, fingers crossed. I have to pack up and go now but wanted to get a post put up quickly before I leave.
