November has been going on for weeks, almost YEARS now…but today it happened! The sun managed its way through to us! It was noon and we could almost pretend that it wasn’t November…! I jumped!!! What a joyful moment! I’m not a dolphin, but just as happy!
I was not in my classroom, although none of my students would have frowned for a sunshine jump, but in the staff room. My reward was a lovely laughter from the two of my teaching friends who were in the staff room at that time. They were, too, happy! We had all forgotten what the sun looked like and were SO happy for the unexpectedly bright sunshine for being this time of the year. I ofteb notice in my classroom, with students from all over the world, that November is a challenge, especially to those who are used to bright sunshine all year through.
It is however not just sunshine that makes ME happy. I also look the stars in the sky for relaxing purposes and this time of the year I search the sky for Orion and think of a friend I know who will search the sky for Orion, too. Sharing a quiet moment wide apart is a way of connecting despite long distance.
