Hey guys. I know, it's Friday, which means I'm supposed to have another Tips post to share. Unfortunately, the truth is that I've been having a hard time with those lately. Which, is why there haven't been many popping up. I've been receiving a lot of requests to cover topics that are well beyond my abilities to explain. And, to be honest, that's made me more than a little uncomfortable.
While I'd like to be able to help, I never set out to be a teacher. This blog was intended as a place for me to share what I'm working on as well as what's happening in my life. Somewhere along the way I must have given the impression that I can teach. But I'm not a teacher, I'm still trying to learn myself.
I also go through phases. I'm currently in a "nesting" phase where I just want to burrow into the room, find fun things, move stuff around, sleep, and work. Usually during the summer I hit a "working" phase where I just want to focus on getting things done. And in the fall to mid winter I hit a "learning" phase where I'm more interested in picking up new skills and sharing what I learn. So right now, I'm not really in the mindset to do research or pick up new methods. I'm more interested in maintaining my materials and preparing for the summer workload.
In other words, I'm about as far from teaching mode as possible at the moment.
If my posts are helpful that's wonderful, but I'd prefer to pull back for a bit if that's okay. I'm sorry. Thanks guys.
