Yes!!! More photos of brilliant blue skies and crisp orange leaves. I wish that I could send the feel of the air along with the blog~it's invigorating.
We celebrated St. Margaret's Day this afternoon~complete with requisite tootling wheezing bagpipes and a procession through the village. I will try to snag some photos from the school pr department.
A little annoyed that there was technical difficulties in getting choir photos~they did me proud with the Tallis Canon~showing their growth in diction, articulation, stage presence, intonation, and breathing. I told them that this was their final exam for the term. I LOVE grading choir finals compared to marking stacks of essays.
While I am not normally one to join the wear-a-coloured-wrist-band or change-your-fb-photo as what feels like mob mentality and futile gestures; after some late night discussions in the dorm about the racial divide on our campus, I felt as though I should wear a pin. I am still a fairly unknown entity here and I could imagine being seen as only 'the white chick from Texas'. So. I want the students who don't know me (hopefully the ones that do already know!) that I am a safe area and I will stand up for them.
