I spent this weekend creating. It was a weekend “off” that I spent working…and I loved it. I wrote 2 weeks of curriculum/schedule, I typed and edited my working script, I created supplemental documents, I did research, I printed images…I loved it. When the work is the work that I love, it doesn’t seem hard at all.
I am planning to go back to school to find another way to do the work that I love. Everything seems right this time…if it ends up with me finally not having to work for someone else, I think that means I win
This is my new inspiration for blogging. I’m planning to take it apart word/phrase at a time and do some analysis.
Starting with: BEGIN AGAIN
I have a deep affection for the Billy Joel song “Got to Begin Again” – I fell in love with it at a time in my life when everything seemed like it couldn’t get any worse, and all I could do was hope to start over…with what seemed like everything, though, of course, it wasn’t quite that. Every time I find a new bottom to hit, I re-discover this song. It’s not an inspiration so much as an empathetic friend…”so I’ve got to begin again, though I don’t know how to start, yes I’ve got to begin again, and it’s hard.”
This blog…beginning again has been in my mind for a long time…even this idea of blogging this manifesto has been in my mind for a while…but actually taking action…that’s the hard part.
