This year I made a plan to slice about my teaching life Monday - Friday in hopes of finding things that make teaching sparkle right now. I worried this might be hard because teaching is hard right now but it wasn't. I was able to listen more intently and observe more intently, finding a sparkle most days. I also think my slices this year brought a bit more of a reflective voice. Sometimes in my blogging life, I'm not sure what to post and slicing brought a fresh new look to my blogging writing. Slicing every day was easier than I thought, even if it was getting late in the evening I knew I wanted to stay strong. I really enjoyed reading slices from this community and wish I had the time to read everything, everyone was willing to put in print. I really appreciated checking in and finding comments from readers. Feedback does bring a smile to an author, thank you. Thank you for reading pieces from my heart and being part of my journey. Until next year, enjoy and embrace what comes your way.
