Then today it happened. I received an email. From someone asking to meet me. To have coffee and discuss teaching. She said,
"I love how you clearly have such excitement for your work, and that your zest for life is evident in everything you do, both in your personal work as well as the work you do with your students. Your site demonstrated to me qualities in teaching and just in my love for art that I want to strive to emulate."
Good grief Jenni. Of course there were a few tears because I'm crazy teary lately. And then it hit me. I am very good at what I do. Teaching, inspiring and encouraging others. Thus why after her email I got on the stick and started thinking about the future. Maybe teaching in Portland wasn't the right place for me right now. But somewhere else might be perfect!
So, I've drafted Tiffin to help me make some media stuff for summer workshops. LOTS of summer workshops. AND.....tomorrow I start the research for how to create an online course. I get emails weekly asking for it. Duh Jenni. It's time.
So Christine thank you. For the lovely email. And yes....coffee sounds great!
