artist's way @mac: week 1

by gl. at 11:20 pm

six students: 5 girls, 1 boy. 1 boy dropped before the class began and another never showed tonight.

two people had heard of artist's way before and one even has a copy -signed- by julia cameron! two people thought it sounded neat but had no idea what they were getting into. we have at least three poets and a singer, and four people who used the same calligraphed "music" word on their collage. music, of course, is one of my weakest areas, but this seems too serendipitous to pass up so i am inspired to find music exercises that exploit the piano in the room or are based on handmade rhythms.

but i felt clumsy: i kept calling one woman the wrong name, missed many opportunities to elaborate, and even missed asking people for comments on their collages, and had to backtrack! one woman even thought to bring up the whole confidentiality issue, which hasn't even made it into my boilerplate yet. ugh. i'm better than this. i hope next week i feel like i did a better job.

i do so like collage night, though, in part because i love to see the ways in which people use things i've been keeping for years.

there's probably more worth mentioning, but i'm way tired and a i have a meeting in the morning....
