The Art of the List
Well I have to admit I am in overwhelm mode this week. I started a new part time job teaching art to kindergarten, 1stand second graders about 4 weeks ago and the learning curve has been steep, it’s not about the art it’s about the organizing. What works with each class dynamic, developmental issues, time issues… so each week I’ve gotten a little closer to something that works. Just about the time I have the names of these 150 kids down, the next rotation will start and I’ll be back at the beginning. The challenge is how to weave this new endeavor into my other endeavors and stay sane. I’m not there yet. My slightly obsessive personality has me writing and rewriting list and notes (my iPad was supposed to help me with this but sometimes I just want a piece of paper!) Today we are off for a relaxing weekend of camping along the coast up in Gualala, but right now I am in the throes of organizing, I’d forgotten how exhausting getting ready to relax can be. So I leave you with this image of all the stuff that somehow needs to get in the car plus dog and people. Wish me luck… next week I promise to share art of a different nature.
