Well, it has been a long time since I posted last, but I need to keep this up. So much has happened in even the last 6 months I hardly know where to start. So, I'll start at the beginning.
The school year started out great. I had a great class in an awesome school. Then January hit and all went to Hades. I lost my Dad in January. The pandemic hit in March, and I lost my sister-in-law just this month. If nothing else I have learned to adapt. Not cope necessarily, but adapt. My magic went from close-up to close-up from afar. I added in a bit of mentalism so I didn't have to get so close. I learned to teach online and how to use a whole shwack of online platforms.
You could say I've learned more through these hard times than I learn in the good times. Which sounds kind of crazy! Why wouldn't I take advantage of the good times to do new and wonderful things? Because I like feeling comfortable. When times are good I don't feel the need to change anything. Just keep the status quo. Then bad times hit and you are forced to change.
I don't know about you but, for me, change is okay. Always better if I initiate it, but it's okay. Uncertainty is a killer. So, from now on, change will come from me in times of good fortune. I will no longer wait for change to tell me what to do. Someone once said "A calm sea never made a good sailor." Well, my sea hasn't been calm for a while. I must be getting good.
Stay safe, be well.
