The details of my life are...

Mexico is even closer. I'm still jealous.

Luckily, it isn't a sign of unhappiness with what I'm doing. I'm in the midst of one of my favourite parts of my job. Welcoming new students to a new school and a new country makes me happy because I'm having a positive effect. Sure I recognize that, under certain circumstances, my life is inconsequential. The planet likely couldn't give a donkey's left nut that I'm doing my thing on its surface but I know that I mean something to the people around me. No big head here. I don't have to turn sideways to get through doorways but I know that I am a part of the lives of those I come into contact with. We all are. That can be a wholly fulfilling acknowledgement sometimes.

Maybe this is shedding a little light on the dark parts of my being... Maybe it's just some candles. Hmmm.

Hmmmm indeed... Light and dark certainly make up our life. Continue on.....

Sometimes the smallest things are the most important. One small moment of kindness to someone might make a huge difference. I'm big on the pebble-in-pond theory of influence.

Too true. I hope that at points of reflection in my life (not just at the end), I'll be able to look back and feel like I have lived my life with that thought in mind.
