having gotten out of the habit

My new year goal: to sit down once in a while and write something thoughtful like I ask my students to do, and some of them do it so well... see the following in response to a chapter in Julia Cameron's The Right To Write:

Teaching is so fabulous--after breaking through the stress and the ridiculous that on occasion occur and make the fabulous blurry--because sometimes the students really do inspire and call us to be better ourselves, as people and as teachers. This is a good lesson to realize and remember at this yet another end of a semester.
