I had a good day today. I feel really good energy coming out of the school and am excited to see what grows this year. Tomorrow is our first Chinese class and the day after that is our first permaculture day.
Today we planned a trip to the Frye Museum for this coming Thursday.
We had a killer game of GeoGuessr as well with a score of over 15,000!
We had our first day of focused lunch time. Katie and I were discussing the eating habits of the students and observed that they didn’t eat (maybe they snack, but didn’t eat) and didn’t drink much water while she was around. It’s true, we often get caught up in play and forget to stop and eat. So we’ve implemented (at my request) a 12:30 stop everything and eat policy. I hope that this will lead us to eat more and better. In the future I’d like to expand the lunch time into something that facilitates lunch preparation and group meals. I’ll write another post.
Even though I’m sore from my trip to Vancouver this weekend we took advantage of this amazing day and went outside. I played “two boots” a game I was taught at Cloud House, I’ll write a post about this too.
Our blogging question for today is What is your art?
I’ve done a lot of things that would be considered art. I draw, I’ve painted, I’ve made jewelry and installations. I play music and when I’m all alone I sing.
It is said that code, too, is poetry and I write a lot of code.
I feel, however, that my art is something a little more abstract. I like to think my art is one of facilitation. Coaxing things together and helping bring people’s dreams to life. I’ve done this mostly as a web developer and now I do it as an ALF. The art of creating space for other’s art to flourish.
What five things do you like to do outside:
1. I love to hike, here’s what I did yesterday:
2. Disk, I love to play disk. Ultimate frisbee is my jam.
3. Capture the Flag
4. Biking, all the time
5. Reading or drawing in the sun
