Weekly Photo Challenge - Renewal
Every week, The Daily Post sets a weekly photo challenge. This week's challenge is "Renewal"
I have been a teacher for just shy of 30 years. Sadly, in the past few years the government has funded education less and less and it has become harder and harder to be a teacher. At 51, by the time the school year is over, I am completely and thoroughly exhausted. Last school year was no different. On July 10th we arrived in Catania, drove to Delia to stay with our friend, Marilena. After a wonderful, relaxing sleep, I woke early, got up and walked out onto the terrazza to see this spectacular sunrise. I snapped the picture and then I stood and watched the sun come up. For the first time in a couple of months I felt a wonderful lightness, a new purpose and a real joy.
