A HuGe Week and a Visit From a Rabbit!

This was one heck of a huge week! I feel good about what I was able to accomplish but it was certainly not easy! I have great classes with great kids and I will take the responsibility of their education very seriously. I want to have fun, be creative and still stretch the potential of every student I teach. I am wiped out and yes I thought about bailing many times, but I hung in there sought support when I needed it and it is Friday! Friday night are perhaps my loneliest nights! The pace and demands are incredibly high at a time when my reserves are not what they once were! I will keep pushing on and doing the best I can. I spent tonight listening to the SUPER AUDIO CD mix of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. It may be my favorite album and it is certainly one of the best ever recorded! The surround mix and increased dynamic range are totally exhilarating!

Yesterday, I walked home from school as usual, and as I walked up my driveway a brown rabbit jumped out of the bushes and kind of hopped along in front of me as I continued toward the back porch. I thought it was a bit strange that the bunny did not race away as they usually do. I even made some noises to see if it would bolt away as they usually do. I went into the house and forgot about it. Twenty minutes later I went to the refrigerator which is near a window that looks out into the back yard and there was the rabbit. It was about four feet from the window just sitting there, wrinkling its nose and staring up at the window! I thought this was peculiar since they usually dash into the woods when they see me. I left and went back a bit later and there was the rabbit, still sitting and looking up at the window. At that point all I could think of was Vicki! The way she wrinkled her nose, the soft warmth of her personality and the feeling was pervasive! I took picture with my phone and still it remained there! The picture wasn't great so I went and got my camera and even the flash only made the rabbit blink, but not run! Sounds wild I know! I will post the picture. The quality isn't great through the window screen!

One more Pink Floyd song that I thought of today at work and ironically it has a reference to a rabbit...Run Rabbit Run.......
