His second quarter is finishing in two weeks, then come finals, and a break. Seventeen units of physics, Calculus, honors humanities. When he comes home he's met with all of our pent up affection, our eagerness to share things we postpone until his next visit. He's teaching me about reflection and refraction, how to calculate the angle light travels through different materials. He's already taken me from believing I could never learn physics, complex math, to understanding, or at least feeling like it's approachable.... and that was a long distance to travel. He has such a fluency for math, for abstract conceptualization, for writing, and when he teaches, his patience, with his command of the subjects, lend tremendous confidence. He's opened my mind to so much, and my heart to even more.
There are a great many blessings in my life... one of the greatest is the honor of spending time with my children, with these brilliant young people. They are joys.
