First day of school
thoughts still
on the holidays

Holidays are an unfailing theme of my pupils at the beginning of the school year in September. With joy they talk about their impressions and experiences, impatiently they interrupt each other’s stories. While they speak about their memories of being at the seaside, my thoughts are enriched by their still fresh images of the sea, as well.
A seagull gazing into the distance reminds me of the feeling most of us experience at the time we leave the seaside – sadness for leaving and yet remembrance of a nice time on holiday.
