|First day of teaching, Visual Journaling|
|Yeah, I get a little bit enthusiastic when I teach! I love it!|
|There are 4 tables in the room for the students. The windows look out on the ocean. It's a remarkable setting! When I'm lucky, the ship is calm enough that I don't sway back and forth too much while writing!|
|When there weren't enough tables, they used teh chairs. I feel honored that people were so interested they chose chairs over leaving.|
I'm taking a class from Bob Atkinson on memoir writing which is wonderful. He's helping me figure out how to structure the book I'm writing so that it makes sense. I'm very excited about that. I feel like I might actually be able to put something together now that works! That's a great feeling! When I heard there would be a program called Semester at Sea on board, I had a feeling I might get just the help I need here. www.robertatkinson.net is the website of this teacher. He's quite wonderful - soft spoken, nice, skillful. His wife is an energy worker who is quite a wonderful person. I'm enjoying the two of them greatly.
Other than that, I haven't managed to take any other classes - they happen while I'm teaching or during the writing class - but there's still lots of time, so I know I'll get to do more!
time to go - I do want to see a bit of Colon before the ship departs! See ya again soon!
