I am thrilled - thrilled, I tell you - to announce that I will be teaching at Squam Art Workshops this September with the lovely and talented Marisa Haedike. Marisa and I have built a powerful friendship ever since we first met more than three years ago, and after saying things to each other like, "We should really think about teaching a class together," - hello! - the opportunity fell squarely in our laps. Although I know better than to think this is simply some kind of fluke - that this is the inevitable result of a shared commitment to our creative ideals - I am still in a state of giddy disbelief.
I have thought about teaching for a long time now, and over the past 18 months have taught workshops, led book discussions and spoken at events, each time asking myself if this might be something I want to pursue on a larger scale. What I find so interesting is that any events I've had this year have been opportunities that came to me unsolicited. Like a trail of bread crumps in a quiet forest, I have been following this trail with complete trust, knowing that I am being led to my most meaningful work.
The opportunity to teach at what I consider one of the most beautiful, powerful gatherings on the planet feels more like a giant leap than one small step, and I can't wait to meet all of you - whoever you are - who decide to join Marisa and I in our class this September. All the details are right here and here.
