Today I had the pleasure of seeing one of my long-standing students, Madison Stingray. We have known each other since she was in fourth grade and we’ve been friends and fellow writers now for the past twelve years. She is a recent graduate of Georgetown University and is leaving on Friday to start a Master’s degree in Archaeology at Cambridge University in England.
Madison and I have stayed in close touch while she was in college. She has taken online courses with me through Story Circle Network (SCN) and has even worked as a social media intern for SCN, helping me to publicize the Online Classes program that I coordinate. LIke all good friends, we began talking the minute she sat down and continued until I was waving a teary good-bye two hours later. We share a deep love of writing, which creates a bond that runs deep.
Here’s to a wonderful adventure, Madison, over this next year. Come see me during winter break and tell me all about Cambridge and your studies there. I am already eager to hear your stories.
Much love, my sweet friend.
