After thirteen years, I have stopped teaching public school. The journey up to this point, and all the chaos and joy after it, have made for one of the most fascinating times in my life so far. What is it like to put your own happiness first? What is it like to live a life that matches your own natural rhythms? What is it like to integrate disparate corners of yourself? I have been grappling with all these questions and many more through this blog. I have been grieving what I have lost. I have been remembering what I have. I hope my writing here reflects at least a part of that journey, and encourages you to keep your ears and eyes open, even when it is hard. Thank you for joining me here.
