Hey there, rêveurs and rêveuses, tomorrow is the 13th of the month. You know what that means…
It’s been a long several weeks, work-wise. I’m ready to sleep and dream…
If you participate, be sure to share a photo of yourself, should you feel so inclined. You can post it yourself and include a link in your comment, or you can email the photo to me for me to post.
Happy 13th of the month! Here are my rêveurs photos for September, taken today at school. In the second one, I’m posing for a Book Fair promotional photo; I’ve recommended The Night Circus this year as my Faculty Favorite.
Normally it’s difficult to choose which book I’ve read over the last ten months is the best to recommend, and I often end up recommending several. But this year, although I read many excellent novels, the one which affected me most deeply was an easy choice.
Be sure also to check out my friend Laine’s blog, in which she also today posted “Je rêve” and a delightful picture.
If you’d like to post links in the comments section to your own pictures, fantastic, and if you’d like instead to email me your pictures and let me post them, I’m totally open to that.
…and the poem is a reminder.
I’m not going to spend a lot of time memorializing 9/11 today, even though it is a Tuesday and the sky is that gorgeous shade of blue that heralds the impending drift of autumn. But I do want to highlight a poem that is particularly meaningful, in case you want to read it, entitled “How My Life Has Changed” by Hilary North. Here’s the link to a prose-poem version of it.
In a short moment, I will get on with the rest of my day, not forgetting or diminishing what happened, but also realizing that to dwell upon it could lead to a waste of all the other wonderful things I could be doing to make my life and the lives of people around me better and more fulfilling.
For another reminder, this Thursday is the 13th of the month. I call upon all rêveurs to celebrate with me!
What is she talking about? you may be wondering.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a repost from earlier today. Due to some technical glitches in the system, this post was not received by some of my followers in their email, so it’s being resent. The post has not substantially changed since earlier.
I recently read Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, and for days afterward, I had to distract myself with other things to keep from breathless reverie. I’m trying to remember the last time I was so affected by a book, and I think it was the first time I read
