I retired from teaching at UCLA in 1994
For the last two decades I've team-taught workshops and classes
~ designed art projects to access the wisdom
of the unconscious
~ led SoulCollage and Authentic Adult Woman workshops.
This year I will teach my last formal class!
Here's the funny/sad part ~
Not until now did I really FEEL ENTITLED
to do the more simple things that really delight me
All this time I believed I should do
something useful in the world!
BUT now - I can do what I love to do
Even if it's just
designing and building things
gathering beautiful stones
fiddling with photographs - endlessly
Things I love so much that I lose sense of time
things that I've undervalued
because I do them easily and patiently ~
Joyfully joining hand and heart and mind.
Feeling at home with myself!
WHAT A NICE TIME TO BE ALIVE!
