Spring Break Blues

Roller Coaster at night, Seaside Heights, NJ

This week would normally be spring break for me, but the college administration decided to begin the semester one week late and not have a spring break. I assume they wanted to keep all of us safe by keeping us home when normally we might be out and about.

It’s funny how over the years my mind and body are engrained with the schedule of the school year. I really want a week off to just do whatever I want to do with no students to check in on. I hope when I fully retire from teaching, I will begin to feel free to do what I want, when I want all the time and not plan my travel around school vacations.

Since it feels like it’s spring break, I want to take a break from writing this blog for a week or two. I need to recharge, change up my daily routine as much as possible and do some fun activities that I’ve wanted to do for awhile.

One of those activities is go to an art museum. When I was chatting with Virginia, a pottery teacher at Cochise College and my Story~Power guest for March 17, I was inspired by our discussion about visual art, the emotions the work can evoke, and the stories each piece can tell. I think Barry and I need to take ourselves on an artist date one day soon.

So, this is a short post to let you know that Story~Power will continue. I hope you tune into my conversation with Virginia. She tells some fascinating stories about living in Japan and her creation of and encounters with art. That episode airs here and on Apple, Google, and Spotify March 17.

Thanks so much to all of you who read, like, and comment on these posts. There is so much content out there, I’m honored you take the time to consume my humble thoughts.

Blessings and have a wonderful weekend.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
