I taught my classes today for the last time. My boss-friend (who, incidentally, has been calling every day to complain about us contract teachers not getting paid yet) asked me not to say anything to my students, so I didn't. And of course the kids seemed awfully sweet and I felt guilty because I'd griped about them here last night. But all day long I could feel a low humming happiness deep down, like a quiet stream running through the bottom of a dark cave.

(Jesus, I must be giddy. I'm talking about caves.)

After I got home I changed into the softest clothes I could find. I'm not terribly formal when I'm working but what I love most of all is to wear clothes that do not have any corners. Then I felt my psyche easing up on me. It is the most glorious feeling to not feel obligated to anyone. So good it almost makes up for not being paid.

And tomorrow, if it please the gods, a writing assignment in my e-mail. Fingers crossed. Toes likewise.
