One of the questions on the supplemental application for high school hopefuls trying to gain admission to the hallowed halls of the institution where I work is: "Favorite Word."
I don't know if I had had a favorite word in high school, but I know what it is now.
That's exactly where we are now: on the threshold, on the thin line between fall (a balmy afternoon in the 60s) and winter (snow forecast for Wednesday), not really in either, but somewhere on the edge. One of my students asked me to tea today off campus, and it couldn't have been a more perfect day to escape for a little while. If it hadn't been for her, I might have missed it.
What's your favorite word? Are you bracing for transition? Or have you crossed over?
