Susan and I were talking at dinner tonight.
Talking about the end of the last school year. Susan shared how as she was cleaning out her classroom some of her former students became obsessed with scrubbing and cleaning different parts of the classroom, students who she otherwise wouldn’t have expected to be interested in helping.

The story reminded me of other conversations i had previously with Sherwin about the idea of making things clean and new. There are so many parts of our lives that are difficult and impossible to clean and make new. It feels so reassuring to be able to scrub some dirt away, repaint a wall, to make some little part of our lives clean and new.
