Maylin "in rapture"
I just got back from teaching music to Maylin's class. Loved it. Feel totally energized. Her teacher told me that she was trying to take a picture of Maylin's face during the class because she was looking up at me in rapture the whole time. Wow. It's nice to know I'm having such an effect on her. At home, I don't get that look, but I do get hugs and kisses which make me happy already. But this -- this is really special, too. Imagine seeing your mom in a whole new light. In front of all her classmates, I'm singing, teaching, playing violin, and putting voices to puppets (and making everyone laugh). I wonder what she's feeling and thinking as I entertain and enlighten. Is she proud of me? Does she respect me more?
