single happy moment

Receiving a beautiful pot of tulips from a student, Belinda, who is not only a delight to teach but also a wonderful person to know. These were presented to me on a low night months ago - when I was ready to collapse after a night of teaching.

As I've said before, my students keep my so alive, and teaching is such a joy and passion that it rarely feels like work. And it's not gifts like this that make it worthwhile, but this gift certainly made me remember the vibrant happiness that my work brings.
