I did it! I taught my first class!
I'm back in Wellington, which is impossibly cold, rainy, dreary, and from a weather point of view, wholly unwelcoming. It has been wonderful to see my friends and to see Clodagh, though on some level it's been very much like coming out of the wardrobe from Narnia to the "real world" only to discover you haven't been gone for more than a few moments. I feel like a lifetime has passed, and yet everything here is exactly as it was when I left.
