It's funny, but whenever I am with a group of teachers, I feel more like I am a writer.
But wheneveer I am with a group of writers, I feel more like I am a teacher.
Two different worlds. Each one an enormous part of my life. Each one pulling on me to jump all the way into its ocean.
When I am wading out into the one world,
I feel more like I belong in the other.
Maybe it's that never-all-the-way-fitting-in-thing from childhood that I've somehow managed to carry along into my adult life. I mean, hasn't every kid felt this? (Hello....Harry Potter? Not at home in the muggle world, but doesn't fit in with the other wizards.....yes, I DID need another Harry Potter reference, since you asked.)
Anyway, that's where I am today. Today I am a teacher......
but I pick up a shell and the ocean of words is calling to me.
