– A bright, sunny, slightly cold morning. I interviewed for the New York City Teaching Fellows program. It was weird– the school (Washington Irving H.S.) was beautiful. Afterwards, I ran smack into spring. The farmer’s market at Union Square had loads of spring flowers and colorful eggs alongside the typical winter fare– hot apple cider, cellar veggies, fruit pies, fresh bread, hand-dyed yarn, candles, honey, and jam. Seeing these winter goods reminded me of my favorite children’s book, The Ox-Cart Man.
