Thanks for all the kind wishes everyone. It means a lot. As it happens, I had a lovely day at work today. During morning break, I played with the first years and they tried to teach me how to wrap and throw a spinning top (koma).

Imagine all these six years olds standing around me, coming up to my waist. With a simple loop and a fluid motion, they thread their spinning top and throw it onto the map. And I'm there, with the thread all loose and in bundles around the top.

After school, I helped make crepe paper flowers with the kids. I was supposed to be on my way home by then, but I had yet to discuss next week's lesson with the teachers because they weren't there, so I had to stay.

Here's an interesting YouTube video. Features music using Windows sounds.

I just submitted my Very First Query through an online form... and I'm not sure if it went through or not. I'm not even sure if I can say 'I hope so' or 'I hope not'. It's scary and I've got a cold and I'm tired.

...What was I thinking??
