The teaching week is done and I’m relaxing in the chase lounge on the deck with no breeze but a very comfortable night.
This week zoomed by, quickly, with students making remarkable steps in the process. It’s such a damned delight to watch students take the risk of stepping outside their confidence-controlled comfort zones and discovering a touch of freedom and stronger assurance.
No teaching until Sunday afternoon.
I wish I could spend some time at Carillon Park and Woodland Cemetery, but I’m sticking to the doctor’s orders and avoiding the outside world save my walks.
It’s still strange to have such quiet floating throughout the usually very neighborhood.
Shroyer Road is one of the busier roads in Kettering which, within the stretch of my block offers a massive high school campus, a large United Methodist Church with a preschool, an enormous senior living community, the expansive Lincoln Park, the Fraze Pavilion, and Trent Arena.
The Fraze concerts keep the neighborhood energized and full. At least two hours prior to a show/concert and more than an hour after a concert ends, around 11:00 PM, the traffic is thick.
Many neighbors will carry their blankets for the lawn seating and if I’m not in the know as to who is performing, I can usually tell from the concert goers heading home and still singing some of the music.
It’s a delightful, lively place to live.
