Internet was playing up again last night. I must remind myself to be grateful to have it at all.
I climbed Cape Mountain today with one of my students, it is something we’ve talked about doing for over two years, almost three years. I’m thrilled that we finally did more than talk about it, and am grateful for the bonding experience it was. There is something about being up so high above the place you live that lends to reflection and a sense of seeing it from a ‘bigger picture’ perspective. The petty worries of the every day dropped away in the face of unrelenting high winds, piercing cold, and far reaching and breathtaking expanses. It is in moments like this that I truly recognize how unique and beautiful my current home is, and how much more there is to the village of Wales than the small strip I walk through every day.
