It is Valentine's Day and our first day back in the classroom. We made our way back to Cambridge last evening from our free weekend travels. I've enjoyed listening to the students talk about their . Today in class I gave them some time to share the highlights of their weekend. For most, it seems it was a learning experience on what not to do in the future when navigating the tube in London. I do think they had an enjoyable time overall, however. I certainly enjoyed my time in Bournemouth. I will not soon forget my visit there and the day trip to the Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. I am happy to be back in Cambridge. It has come to feel like home here.
This evening I sat in the hotel enjoying the candlelight, music, and tea after a nice dinner with students. It was a good time to reflect how guiding/sharing life with students helps bring joy and fulfillment to my life and provides me with a sense of place and purpose.
Tomorrow is a very exciting and special day for us, as we will have a private audience with Dr. Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury and one of my heroes.
