Stick and Pumps
I apologize for my literary geekiness in my last post; I realize that it's not kind to all readers.
Yet I am the English teacher lady at the board with a stick-it-to-them pole and wearing high-heeled pumps . . . I must speak the part.
Speaking of career, earlier today I was a graduate study social worker and a professional counselor, while signed up for a graduate education course. This evening, I am now a possible counselor and the same, smiling English teacher (with high heeled pumps and stick-it-to-them-stick). I have been swirling in the possibilities of a career move, researching, calling, caffeinating, but for now, the counselor track seems like a possibility as still does the teaching track.
Work. Ambition. Macbeth.
Work. Ambition. Hillary Clinton.
Work. Ambition. Mother Mabel Carter.
Work. Ambition. Rebecca Skloot, Emily Dickinson, Virginia Woolf.
And, then there's Clara Barton, and Mother Theresa, and women who are the fabric of our society. Money isn't an issue. Their role, conviction, courage in everyday, faith are exemplary.
Illuminate my path, Counselor.
