musings on teaching

I will be teaching our second workshop this week...and I must admit I'm pretty excited. This is better than Christmas, or goodie bags or jelly filled doughnuts. I'm not sure what to expect, how the days will unfold, unravel, how the flowers will come to be, what my attendees will teach me! There are lessons to be learned, fun to be had, wine to be drunk, flowers to be arranged, hours of creating just for the sake of it.
I have had great teachers. And some not so great. But isn't teaching the most dynamic experience? Isn't there one teacher in your life who truly made an impact, who changed the way you saw things, who believed in you, who showed you something you couldn't see all by yourself? I'm pretty sure I'm not that teacher - but I want to be! Who knows...maybe with a little help from my worldly little Alice(modeling a lovely hair wreath above) we will be in good shape. To top it all off some of my favorite people will be there. (though not all of them...you know who you are.) Can't wait to share everything here when we emerge on the other side!

some flowers for now...and later. I just love this clematis vine!
