An Honorable Profession?

Hi Adria,

Just want to apologize for yesterday, as I was probably a zombie. That’s why I seldom plan anything after school on Fridays. I always need lots of time to wrap up and make sure the class is in order for Monday and then walk home. Sometimes I do a little shopping and often buy a new book. That elevates my spirits. I didn’t want to talk about it when I met you, but yesterday was a particularly difficult and devastating way to begin the weekend. I’ll tell you more later. Right now, I don’t think teaching is really an honourable profession. 

I was just looking at the picture I took of the million-dollar (literally and figuratively) view from your studio at school. Such beauty and peace. So if you ever have the slightest idea about switching to the public system –don’t. 

At least we did get to register for the course, which is good. Isn’t memoir writing what we’re already doing in our emails?  I don’t know how we started writing this way and so often, but it is therapeutic for me. This almost sounds like a course we could develop: Emails as Letters or The Art of Emailing. I would say most emails are quickly written and quickly read and many people don’t even bother to read the whole thing or don’t bother to answer questions. Bad news for people like me who are presumptuous enough to think that emails should be thoroughly read and answered. That’s a should that I should delete from my expectations. 

 I’ll end now as I have quite a few mind-numbing things to do. Dan and I will walk to the Eaton Centre later. I have to go for new glasses and then we want to see the Cavalcade of Lights at City Hall – an annual tradition since we’ve lived here. Usually it’s freezing cold, but like the rest of the month it is quite mild. 

Take care and enjoy the family get-together this evening.
