I’ve signed up to take two adult classes this fall: “Drawing from Observation” and “Meditation for Everyone.”  With no tutoring this fall, I actually have time and energy to pursue some things that interest me, and I have high hopes for these classes.  I’m not great at drawing, but I do enjoy it, and I’m looking forward to learning a bit more about shading and shadow (my main drawing strength, if I can be said to have one, lies in contour line drawing – I stink at shading).  And meditation has got to be good for me, considering that I get migraines and generally tend to be overstressed. 

So we’ll see.  With any luck, eight weeks from now I’m be calm, centered, relaxed, and turning out great works of art in charcoal and pencil… Ok, at least maybe I’ll meet some new people.
