SO Many Things
Lately My Schedule is so busy -
It's seems almost overwhelming

BUT - there is the countdown
soon the school term will end
and, although i honestly enjoy it
The few hours I'll reclaim during summer
will be welcome.
I teach (you knew that)
I am also a student
On Tuesday Mornings
I join a class of learners.
We have been studying together for two years.
The classes lately have become super challenging.
I mean, i always enjoyed BOTH my classmates AND the Studies . . .
But, as we round the bend and i see the conclusion -
The classes have become
This last Tuesday we began a two week study of the "Shoah" (Great Catastrophe)
Okay, that's the word i prefer - the word we are using is "Holocaust" (burnt offering)
Oh My Fur & Whiskers - this subject has always been - difficult for me . . .
This week we looked at how something like this could happen . . . something important for us to understand, i know. We discussed WHO exactly was responsible . . . yep, we need to understand it wasn't just one person . . . and who was impacted . . . . I tried to forget it was a twelve year period . . I don't like to think of eleven million people . . . and all the PROMISE lost to us - all the families and the wonder and the beauty . . . . (ARGUH!!!) - One more of these to go - only seven more classes all together . . . BUT, there is a second class - and this Tuesday the topic was Redeeming Captives. It's an interesting exercise when we consider it from a historical perspective . . . but, the comfort level leaves as soon as we apply everything we learn from ancient texts to current life situations . . How does anyone EVER figure out what is the correct response.
Yes, Seven More Weeks - History and Ethics . . . enough to make my head steam.
