Celebrate with Ruth Ayres @ ruth ayres writes …. because we need to celebrate moments in our lives every chance we get!
I am lucky this weekend to be in Kennebunkport, Maine at the invitation of Brenda Power and Choice Literacy…a gift, a challenge, a call to write and do nothing but write all in one.
I am in the company of gifted educators and writers, a supportive and generous community.
I am in a lovely old inn, full of history and charm.
And, I have lots of ideas rumbling around in my head: ideas about teaching, the kids I teach, the way I teach, and the way I want to teach. I live and breathe this teaching life, and I have things I want to write…
…sometimes the fear of not being able to say what one most wants to say gets in the way of saying anything at all.
On a walk last night we saw these mysterious whirligigs twirling merrily away,
And this morning, I spied a large shell filled to the brim with more shells:
Mystery, magic, choice, variety, complexity…the writing life. This morning, this writing morning which begins a writing day, I feel as though I am in the company of Ruth Ayers, who wrote this on her blog: I’m going to fight the good fight by writing.
Yes. I will write, and I celebrate that!
