The Place Where I Am
Today, I got a test back with a thrilling 97% at the top of it. I took a unit test for another class, and I think that I did well on that too. I am preparing for a mid-term on Thursday which has me bug-eyed with terror. As I was copying some material, a young girl from my class stood by. We talked. She admitted that she's terrified about this test as well. "Let's study together at the library tomorrow after our LifeSpan class," I suggested. "We'll pass the word. Who ever wants to join us for a few hours can." And she accepted readily, relieved. I was just as relieved as she was, truth be told. Later, I scooted out to my truck to drop off my bookbag, and I heard the sound of a bird call behind me. Surprised, I turned to see a tall smiling young man from one of my classes last spring. "How are you?" he hailed me. And we talked, because I've only seen him a couple times this semester. I walked to my next class in the unseasonably warm and cloudy October day, and I loved this place in life that I am.
