Also, I wanted to let folks know that I just finished my first semester as a Adjunct Professor at Hunter College in the Theatre Dept. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to more opportunities to teach at the collegiate level. It was such a breeze after working in the NYC public schools as a teaching artist for all those years. Will keep you posted.....
So now that we're officially halfway through the year, have you taken the time to assess where you've come from and where you're going? I've been engaging my demons, no doubt, and exploring how to break through the sticking points. One of my problems, however, is that I feel the need to tackle it all at once, and/or I conflate one issue with something else, and so it all feels overwhelming and paralysis/stagnation sets in.
Another thing that often stands in my way is that I don't take the time to remember the good stuff, and to let that count for something rather than discounting the positive because I'm not where I feel I should be. While it's good to have them, expectations can be a real bee-yotch if you're not careful to stay loose and grateful for what is.
All that said - what's going on?!
