I am a scholar again. Well, an online one anyway. I have decided to pursue getting my teaching license, and found that the college in town offers some online courses to that end. So, I am reading and posting and learning all about education technology and philosophy. It is exciting to be back in that groove. Though when I was originally in that groove, I was sitting in a cool classroom with a beefy novel in my hand discussing Jane Eyre, Flannery O'Connor, and Alexander Pope. Now, I'm cuddling my feverish daughter while still trying to reach a keyboard to post my thoughts on the class forum discussion. Things change. But, it feels nice to have a direction, and I think this is a good one. I was smart once, you know. I'll get there again. And the cuddling will help I'm sure.
