Teaching into the Void

I will never forget my first day teaching. It was a warm September morning, there I was, at 8 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time) sitting in front of my laptop, Zoom camera on, with only black boxes with names to take attendance. Two out of twenty students used pictures. I sat back and did my typical Latina habit of talking with my hands. No matter how nervous I was and how quiet my students were, I did my best to bring positive energy as there were essentially crickets in the background. I felt as though I may as well be talking to myself.

Nice to hear a positive perspective on this year. I think it has clarified that we are all the same really. Maybe that will allow us to move beyond the exclusive superiority that clouds our view of the world spiritually.
