Day 270 – Where do I begin?

I’ve been learning to sew and helping my new friend and teacher, Atif, make costumes for an upcoming production at Rockhurst College. It’s been great to have him tell me what to do and I do it and viola – in a few hours, we’ve made a dress! Very cool. The workshop is right above the theater and across from the choral department so I’m in heaven – finally back in the theater element I so loved as a teenager.

The last few days I’ve been very aware of the great teachers (past, present and future) I have in my life. It feels like now is a time to start recapitulating the termas (major lessons) I’ve received from each. With that in mind, it’s not difficult to see how my experiences with Atif and with my acting teacher Alan got me in the mood for today’s dance.

Mark was also inspired in using the laundry balls we bought at Aldi – they supposedly beat your clothes clean so you need less soap- and some wire to secure the fabric hanging around our loft. He also did some brilliant camera work!

Where do I begin to say how much I love him and all of my teachers. Thank you!
