Avidya: According to The Yoga Glossary, this term means "ignorance." As in, Principal Man disturbed the peace of my ashram with several inane decisions. Or, in my review of hundreds of student assignments this past week, I've come to feel that avidya kinda vibe. And ~ but of course ~ Back-to-School Nite, being the silly & exhausting ritual that it is, has left me still somewhat jet-lagged.
Aside from the asinine, my shanti (peace) has also been a tad askew since Mr. Fairway entered the hospital yesterday for knee replacement surgery.
But (Praise the Lord), miracles of miracles, Principal Man has kept his mouth shut of late (the last couple of days); my student journalistas had a sucessful day at a state-sponsored workshop (more on taking teens on field trips later), & Mr. Fairway is on the mend, scheduled to return home mañana. All is right with the world ~ or close enough, which is good enough for moi.
