March Break Hermits
March 15, 2011

March Break. I’ve been thinking about schools, and Ivy and her future. The position of teacher should be well paid, highly sought-after and venerated. Surely our health and our children are the two most precious things in life, yet while we value our doctors so highly and reward them so well, we continue to neglect the people who care for our children. And while I am bitterly opposed to what we in Canada call a ‘two-tiered’ medical system, where the wealthy get better medical care, we are seriously considering private school for Ivy. Sensei, guru, mentor. Oh, if only Oprah and I ran the world. A lot of people and all parents must feel this way about our teachers. And parents probably never value teachers as much as they do at March break.

So, born of the tyranny of a bored toddler, this one’s for the teachers: cookies with chocolate chips, dates, walnuts, and chickpeas. Don’t get all caught up in that yough, these are excellent cookies.
