Slice of Life 22


One More Week

For ISKLers, today marks the beginning of the last week of school before spring break.  Students and teachers alike are all looking forward to the holiday before the final push until the end of the year.  For me, this week is rather bittersweet.  Yes, I am ready for a holiday too, but, spring break marks the beginning of my maternity leave.  Thus, for me, spring break is more than a holiday, it is the end of my 2014-15 academic year.  I have so enjoyed my students and colleagues this year, and I simply can't believe that in five short days our time together will come to a close.

As I think of leaving, the line from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet has been playing over and over in my head... "Parting is such sweet sorrow."  So, for today's slice, I thought I would share the passage from the greater scene as it captures my mood at the moment perfectly.

JULIET
     At what o'clock tomorrow
     Shall I send to thee?


ROMEO
     At the hour of nine.

JULIET
     I will not fail: 'tis twenty years till then.
     I have forgot why I did call thee back.

ROMEO
     Let me stand here till thou remember it.

JULIET
     I shall forget, to have thee still stand there,
     Remembering how I love thy company.

ROMEO
     And I'll still stay, to have thee still forget,
     Forgetting any other home but this....

JULIET
     .....Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
     That I shall say good night till it be morrow. (Act II, Scene 2)
