On one hand, this is just a nice snapshot of me and my fine self taking a dip, to cool myself off in the summer heat (I hope everyone out there has found a way to stay chilled in these high temperatures). The song (slowed down edit of Sunset Lover by...

And still I rise     I am unclear of how to start this, as there are a multitude of ideas, thoughts, feelings, whirring through my mind. I suppose I should begin by saying that I have qualified as a teacher! After one of the most difficult years of...
