Goodbye

July 24th, 2006

Yesterday was my official goodbye at Granville Chapel from my Jr. High youth and parents. Baking hot and blazing sunny, it was a great day for a pool party and BBQ. I really appreciate the effort Susan Robertson put into organizing and arranging it. I got exactly the kind of closure I needed, and I think the pre-teens benefitted from it as well.

I’ll never forget the image of twenty-five or so pre-teens and their siblings, paddling like ducks in the shallow end of the swimming pool, their sunlit heads bobbing up and down with the water, saying individual thank you’s for my work. It was uncannily sweet – like an unexpected, perfectly delicious granny smith apple.
