Life in My Closet

By Jonna Shutowick. M.S. Ed.
I’ve always fondly referred to my closet as my “Room of My Own” and my copy of Virginia Woolf’s book of the same name is front and center on one of the shelves.

Sleepless

By Jonna Shutowick. M.S. Ed.
A sleepless night can be a blessing. I am not sure why my body suddenly becomes restless now at three a.m. but I would bet it has something to do with age.
