I have a million ideas in my head.
When I concentrate on a particular one, it flows out from my mind like a flag, waving and inviting me to create something out of it.
Which made me think of the song Waving Flag, and the fact that I didn’t get into it until I heard Jian Ghomeshi (gorgeous intelligent man that he is) interview K’naan. I admit that, as an idea person, if someone’s ideas appeal to me, I will grow to love their work, even if my “first impression” was indifferent or even negative.
I am not saying good-bye today, but I am saying that when you next hear from me, things will be different. I can feel a sea change coming on, so it’s time to go fishing. There are art avenues I want to travel down, and if you stay subscribed, you will be the first to know where I’ve travelled!
But for the time being, I am taking a sabbatical from online posting, even while I reserve the right to write a post now and then if I find something I simply have to share immediately.
The last week of school, before I retired from teaching, I told every child: “Have a great life!” Who knows when or if I will see them again? And who knows when you will hear from me, or where our paths may cross.
I love the open-ended-ness of that, realizing life is a game and a fascinating adventure.
Remember to love yourself,
