Last week, I mentioned how I was being gracious with myself. As it does every year at this time, my teaching life is ramping back up. Unlike any other year, the world is kind of facing crises on multiple fronts. So the ramp’s a little higher this year.
So it’s okay If I take my time with the prompts.
Right now, the main way I want to feed my creative spirit is by reading. One book I’m reading now is Artemis Fowl (I’m in a self-styled book club with my nephews-in-law), and the other is Ron Chernow’s Hamilton. That’s what I’m interested in right now. I just have to trust the things that occupy my mind. I also have to trust “right now.”
