I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been plowed over by all that is June.
This month saw the end of the 2009-2010 season of the WNY Young Writers’ Studio, highlighted by our Celebration of Writing and the publication of our first anthology (featuring 20 of this year’s 60 writers)! It’s also the end of our school year here in Western New York, which marks all sorts of endings and new beginnings. Earlier this month, I began teaching part time in the Graduate School of Education at Medaille College, which I am enjoying thoroughly–more on that another day. Last week, my youngest daughter turned ten the same day that I noticed my very first age spots. Seriously.
Summer is filled with Studio sessions, supporting new instructional coaches as they plan for their first full year on the job, facilitating several writing and teaching institutes, getting my own writing done, and watching contractors tear my roof and yard apart while I lather on the sunscreen that will prevent the darkening of the age spots.
I also need to catch up here!
