Some locations I’ve had the privilege of shooting in over the last week.
Loving Franschhoek, South Africa.
LORELAI: Hello Gran, good to see you.
TRIX: You’re well?
LORELAI: I’m well.
TRIX: You’re working?
LORELAI: I’m working.
TRIX: You’re single?
LORELAI: I’m single.
TRIX: By choice, or do you scare the men with your independence?
LORELAI: Actually, I scare them with my Minnie Pearl impression.

Often the truth offends, more often it sets us free.
God loved us enough that he send his son to die for us, sometimes we love ourselves so much that we kill the children inside us so as not to inconvenience ourselves.
But, even if you have. Know that God is a conquerer. That his love conquers all. His sacrifice was for you.
For we who truly care are often far harder on ourselves than our students are willing to be. Because we who truly care are often our own worst enemy. We mentally beat ourselves up for trivial failures. We tell ourselves we’re not enough. We compare ourselves to others. We work ourselves to the bone in the hopes of achieving the perfect lesson plan. The most dynamic activities. The most engaging lecture. The brightest, fanciest furnishings.
Because we want our students to think we’re the very best at what we do and we believe that this status of excellence is achieved merely by doing. But we forget- and often. Excellence is more readily attained by being.
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
I love how far he thinks he will get with maths “if he was to live forever”
