A little less than a happy high
Wake up, wake up
When things go amiss, I find myself returning to basics. These are things that are not so much mundane (though I have come to appreciate just how extraordinary the ordinary can be), but rather things that remind me of who I am. At their heart, they remind me of what it means for me to be human, to have desires, to experience awe and love and peace.

Tonight, I got to see Blue Man Group thanks to the delightful agoodshinkickin. I suppose they might seem an unlikely match, but they have fascinated me since I first learned of them back in the day. During their performances, I pass through delight and joy and then can be touched by sadness and sometimes fear. Here, I am inspired to think and feel. It is cathartic.

To each their own. I happen to find myself in odd places.


In other news, a review of my horrid, terrible, very bad tax trouble has revealed itself to be not quite so horrid, terrible or very bad. Things are still bad, but for once a financial crisis has adjusted itself downwards, and I'm finding a strange comfort in that. This is an alarm call. I can manage if I live deliberately, and there's something that's begun working in my head.

Current Mood: touched touched
Current Music: Bjork, "Alarm Call"

BMG is awesome! And I don't agree that they're not a match for you. They are primal and fanciful and inspired. Alot like you.

Man... you're going to make me tear up.

more on tutoring...

Well it wasn't exactly a cold calling thing...my dad works for the school district so I sort of had an in there...but there was no advanced degree required...they run a CORI check on you to make sure you're not a criminal, and you may need some references...but other than that I don't see why you couldn't tutor. I did, however, cold call for substitute teaching positions which amounted to the same procedure, they want background info and a resume... As far as the tutotring went my name got put on a list and the guidance department would call me every 4 months with a student who needed help in this or that...by the time I got a call I had already found work so I wound up turning them down. I figured that you're very well read, it seemed like a good match. My suggestion would be to call up the guidance and HR departments at Medford High to see if there is a need for tutors... It can't hurt

I'm not sure if I'd make the greatest cult leader, but the blessing made me smile... no mean feat, I promise. ^_^

Ooooo, jealous of the Blue Man Group going, but equally glad for you that you went and got so much out of it.

Also very glad to hear that the financial crisis has, if not been averted, at least become manageable. You free for a phone call tonight, or will you be working on said tax forms?

I'm actually still going to try to make it into the studio, even if it means having to scavenge tools from the lost and found box for the evening.

The next worry will be trying to fund the next session so I can break the two months on/two months off cycle.

Are there any other studios around that are cheaper to access? I mean, do you feel like you need to be in a class, or do you feel comfortable enough to run with things and figure them out on your own? If you don't feel the need for a class, maybe you can find some studio space that allows people to use it for a smaller fee?

Nah. Right now, this is where I need to be. I know that eventually I'll have to go elsewhere if I'm really to grow, but for the time being, instruction is very useful. It will be when I move on, as well.
