This gratitude is a little double-edged, however. I'm not sure, with the changes to come in my working situation, whether I'm going to be able to continue to teach. I have to provide for my family, even if that means forfeiting the classroom.
I've always said that the job at the medical office feeds my family; the job at the university feeds my soul. This afternoon, I had a great time with my students. We watched 2001: A Space Odyssey, a difficult film, to say the least. But these kids were enthralled, the way I remember being the first time I saw 2001.
I can't imagine not teaching.
Hopefully, it won't come down to that for Saint Marty.
