Thanks, Squirrel. One school I worked in, I used to leave so early that in the winter months the sun rose directly in front of me as I drove for 30 minutes - and each day it was something different, something special, and was like balm to the spirit, as it is to the heroine of your story. You describe it so well. Thank you.

I'm not sure I recall reading this before, Squirrel, but I'm so glad you have posted it here - there is something very special about sunrise anywhere, but particularly out in the country. I love your description of the peace of the place, and also the way you evoke the contrast between the world of the schoolgirls and that of your narrator. It's no wonder that she would be keen to see them again.
