What an incredibly beautiful, important essay. One I needed tremendously and sent to my husband immediately. While our stories are very different, we overlap in so many areas. I have no doubt I will reread this piece many times throughout my life. Bravo.
A "Teacher Who Changed My Life Booklet" with 27 finalist essays will also be distributed during the ceremony, along with a door prize of a mini-iPad for raffle!

I am not busy. I am the laziest ambitious person I know. Like most writers, I feel like a reprobate who does not deserve to live on any day that I do not write, but I also feel that four or five hours is enough to earn my stay on the planet for one more day. On the best ordinary days of my life, I write in the morning, go for a long bike ride and run errands in the afternoon, and in the evening I see friends, read or watch a movie. This, it seems to me, is a sane and pleasant pace for a day. And if you call me up and ask whether I won’t maybe blow off work and check out the new American Wing at the Met or ogle girls in Central Park or just drink chilled pink minty cocktails all day long, I will say, what time?
