Eve and Justin sneak a kiss


It’s been a busy summer, and so I haven’t been as diligent about blogging as I might have been.

First, I had foot surgery, which required a far longer recovery than anticipated, and then my oldest daughter was married in a beautiful ceremony at home a few weeks ago.  That’s my daughter, Eve, and her new husband, Justin, in the photo, if you haven’t already guessed.

I guess all that warranted a bit of time off for me.

But now I’m recovered and back at work -

My Good Fortune

I feel very fortunate indeed that I am able to do work that I love in a place that I love.  I’ve had a number of different careers in my life, but teaching at the Lake Tahoe Institute of English is definitely my very favorite.

Many of our clients at the Lake Tahoe Institute of English have met my dear friend Mary.  She teaches for us on occasion and is a frequent dinner guest with clients.  Always outgoing, interesting and friendly, Mary specializes in what she laughingly calls “coffee and chat” jobs.  She just loves being around people and wouldn’t work at anything that doesn’t involve talking with them.

What Could Possibly Be Better?

For me, the Lake Tahoe Institute of English is like a “Mary job” or a “coffee and chat” job.  It’s a lot of work, but so much of it is incredibly interesting and fun.  After all the preparation, most of what I get to do all day is talk to amazing, interesting and varied clients from all over the world.  I make friends for life, learn much about everything, and get paid to do it.

What could be better than that?
