"Write what should not be forgotten." Isabel Allende

     The sunset the other day was incredibly beautiful.   The ephemeral beauty of a sunrise or sunset should be documented somehow, since it will never be the same scene twice.
      There are so many things in life like this.  Little every day things that we take note of but quickly move on to something else.  There are so many moments during the day with my students that I should treasure:  like Hannah saying in her inimitable way that she is going to be a seamstress when she grows up, that she received a real sewing machine for Christmas, and next she would like a mannequin to make clothes for.   Soren saying his hopes and dreams for the world are that everyone would believe and go to heaven.  These moments should be cherished, but we must keep on schedule and they are soon lost in the shuffle of the day.  So I will document the beautiful moments here, with photographs and words so that they are not forgotten.
