Day 33 - Peace

Day 33 - Peace, originally uploaded by dragonsinger.

Kids gone - time to relax. First day of school over. Note the empty space on the wall where my flash new Promethean IWB is supposed to be!


  1. Interesting how a photo may affect a person.

    With the soft affect of it and the subject I find myself with tears rolling down my face.

    My sister was a teacher in Wellington. Through her morphine induced haze lying dying in the hospice she composed a speech for each for us.

    To me she said, "Thank you for putting the chairs up."

    She was thanking me for quitting my job for a time to be with her, helping her pack up the classroom one last time and helping her through her final days.

    Thanks for the photo.

    I haven't had a good cry in a long time.


  2. Wow - that's really bittersweet isn't it.
