What fills me today is being ready, finally, to start working on a new class. More than likely, interactive again, after all this time. Those are time-consuming and exhausting, but this is something I want to connect with, personally. Connect with the students, personally.
It will grow out of this place--a journey begun, for me, years ago in the 70s, really.
This is what I wrote on my Facebook page this morning:
"Someone flipped a switch in my brain. There WILL be a new class upcoming, maybe two of them, I've been writing for 2 hours and ideas just keep flowing. I love this part of what I do!
This is a class I thought of doing a couple of years ago, but life--and death--got in the way.
It will TAKE some time to pull it together, but it feels good to be so full of energy and ideas."
And I've been writing down thoughts, quotes, ideas, and plans ever since.
It will be personal. It will be DIFFERENT. I'm not even sure where it will take place, yet, but most likely on my old familiar Blogger.
I'm not sure what to call it, yet..."Meaning-full Journaling" popped to the forefront this morning.
But I am confident it WILL happen. It feels right. I am full of a serene kind of excitement, if that isn't too much of a contradiction in terms.
