On my way back to La La Land.
The intensive here in Baltimore was amazing and life changing. I was lucky enough to be in the room during students going forward towards something new and frightening, and joyous and beautiful. Leaving is always a big deal for me. It's always difficult, it's always huge and it always shakes me. But letting theses Angels go and being in their presense while they fly away, changes me. And I feel different because of them.
I stayed with the delicious Susan Kramer, who's the producer and was my co-teacher in the room. Together we held on tight and tried to get out the student's way. She was my late night movie pal, and my guide.
But now, I'm on to the next Big Thing for me. Now I enter into Thesis Land. This is where I get to write down what's been inside me for the last year while I've been in Grad School. And as my final year come closer, I seem to be getting the same feeling my students do. Where do I go? What do I do? How do I go without my cheerleaders? I agree with them. It's terrifying. And thrilling.
And I'm with them:
"I have no idea what to do next."
