that's from somewhere in beloved (toni morrison). it came to me as i was walking to the train from work tonight. it's something i need to work on believing.
on the way home from the train every night now, i see kids- high school kids, middle school kids, and i miss them. their vibrance and their life. i don't miss their attitudes, or their laziness, or their "jokes," but there are a lot of things i do miss. i love the new job for the way it stretches my brain, and gives me opportunities to grow, but i miss the kids. i never thought i'd say this, but i would pay money, i think, to hear phionna's voice say, "ms. OSBORNE! what the hell you do to your hair?!"
