    Wheew. A soul exchange that BOOMS. You to her and her right back and the once role of teacher student has timewarped to peers. I love it.

    What a lovely tribute to your Father. SO succinct and spare, no gushiness or dragging me in to emotion, but letting me tiptoe next to you and feel it through you. How sweet it was.

    And my high school English teacher, Miss B, has been immortalized in my blog more than once. She truly gave me the best gift of all: how to read and love Shakespeare.

    It’s good always to have “a thing.” I see your dad’s thing was his children and grandchildren. Please don’t think he died alone; he had them in his heart.

    Despite the negativity that many people place on it, I’ve found so much joy in reconnecting with people (like my HS French teacher) on FB.

    Congrats on another piece being published!

  6. Aw, what a nice bit of reinforcement from your teacher!

    My “thing” in high school was drama and band. And I think even adults need a “thing.” Even if it varies over time. Right now, mine is gardening.

    What a moving story! And I so empathize. After gaining a degree, encouraged by an inspiring Dept. Head who just about saved my life, he asked me to come back and teach with him. I felt then much as you felt here:)
