Everything I Need

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

As we learn as adults, “Need” and “Want” are very different things. I’m preparing to teach at Sock Summit in Portland, Oregon.

I leave Wednesday, which is much less than a full day. I’m reminding myself that I’ve traveled a lot over my 52 years and it’s always been wonderful. Packing is always a confused time and yet I do fine.

I remind myself, also, that I’ve taught professionally since 1994. I know my subjects, I’m passionate about them, and I know I can give my students and the conference organizers what they paid for.

It’s still a little overwhelming. I keep repeating the lyric from a Bob Dylan song (She Belongs to Me, 1965) that helps me on creative-frenzy days.

“She’s got everything she needs, she’s an artist, she don’t look back.”

Here is a link to the full song (mysterious and cryptic, as Dylan does well).

I leave Wednesday and return Wednesday. I will most likely be posting to my Twitter account more often than posting blogs, while I’m gone. My twitter name is @ColorJoy

If you want to see what I’m saying (including repeating/re-tweeting other folks’ tweets which inspire me), you can see my outgoing texts without joining Twitter, here: http://twitter.com/colorjoy

Will you be there? I know one person already who’ll be in my Crystal Heel class. Anyone else? Send me an email at Lynn AT ColorJoy.com and I’ll try to meet up with you somehow. If you see me there, I may not know your face. PLEASE say hi. I’m approachable, I’m kind, and I’ve never bitten anyone…
