A Snowy Start

It’s another snowy day here in Boston.  As much as I’m dreading having summer vacation cut into even further, I decided to turn this unexpected day off into a productive one.
I’ve been so swept up in work (I’m a paraprofessional at a middle school and an after-school tutor), moving into a new apartment, and starting graduate school, that any activities of a creative nature have taken the back-burner.  No more!  I’ve decided to start this blog in the spirit of providing myself with a creative outlet; a place to unwind and share my thoughts on subjects I find interesting and beautiful.  I’m not exactly sure what I plan on posting yet, but I’m hoping that this little blog will serve me well, and maybe even brighten up other people’s days.  

On that note, I’ll leave you with a snippet of the gorgeous book I’m currently reading.  Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan, lent to me by a fellow teacher friend, has been utterly engrossing from page one.  In her autobiographical piece, Cahalan leads her reader into the harrowing “month of madness,” brought about by a mysterious and nearly-missed illness that ravaged her brain.  I haven’t yet finished the book, but since I’m snow-bound for the rest of the evening, I’m guessing I’m about to!
Stay tuned.
