I've been tagged by Tammy to write five things no one knows about me. I'm not so sure that there ARE five things no one knows, because I talk so much, but I'll try:
1. I believe that trees have spirits, because one time when I drove by a fire I could hear them screaming in pain as the flames licked at their feet.
2. I almost did not make it through the two-year-long post-partum depression I experienced after the birth of my last baby. I was completely convinced that my family would be much better off without me. Driving across the bridge on the way from town to home was a struggle every time; sometimes I had to stop the car and wait until I thought I could make it across.
3. I am writing a novel.
4. Someday my college roomie and I are going to do what we call 'the Mary Stewart thing' in Greece--Mary Stewart is one of our favorite authors, and some of the books we like best are set in Greece. Other than that, I have very little desire to travel.
5. I love teaching with a passion (whether it's math or writing or art); I think it is probably what I do best in all the world, and I do it even when I don't know I'm doing it.
Now I need to tag five people--this is the hard part! I'll tag McEwen, Laurel at Studio Lolo, Emila (who has been so kind to my Katie), Diane, and my Katie. Whew! That was hard!
