Oh, Sandra. This gave me chills. How lovely, and how you honor her with your work.

What a lovely and moving tribute.

Your ability to remember your experiences as though you were tasting a fine wine or eating a gourmet meal in the moment is so rare and beautiful it made me cry politics and prose yesterday. You are quite unique and obviously very talented
with the gift of empathic creativity

Sandra, I am Rose's daughter Adelaide (Lolly), and your blog was forwarded to me by Lara Shainis, one of Mum's old colleagues at Haycock. I cannot tell you what joy your essay gave me. And my mother would be absolutely wild with delight at your success, and the knowledge that she had played a part in it! She always said to me that a teacher affected eternity, and how right she was! I truly think that teaching the Haycock kids was one of the great highlights of her life. I will follow your career with great interest and pleasure. I send you very best wishes for happiness and success, and I know Rose would join me!

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
