I’m about to head off the grid for a week or two, with only brief glimpses of online things. It’s that time of year and I need a break – and I’m celebrating an anniversary with Ms. the Teacher – our tenth. A good time to pause and reflect – on many things.
But, before I go, I wanted to leave myself a note about something I wanted to think more about when I returned – and it’s this:
Larissa was responding to a question about it not being “normal” to find places, specifically schools, where love is the reigning paradigm1. She said, plainly and rightly, that maybe love should be the norm.
And that’s worth fighting for. That’s worth doing. I like that new normal. Bunches. And didn’t want to forget as I slip off into vacation mode.
So get started on that while I’m gone. Okay?
