This week, I have made some progress on personal issues and I’m feeling a bit more optimistic about things in general. I am also realizing that I have been putting a lot of pressure on myself with unrealistic expectations. Not a new thing, but new for me to accepting that I don’t really need to do many of these things that I am being self-critical about. It is a liberating feeling. I still have a lot of work to do on attitude, but it’s starting to go the right way. Success in the No-Comfort Zone is not always what we started out for it to be!
This week I am preparing for the Quebec workshop, which takes place next weekend. Nervous about it, yes. The instructor is a very well-known Canadian poet, and editor of one of the major national journals. But so were the first two, Barry Dempster and Roo Borson. I learned a lot from both.
Looking forward to the opportunity, then, to work with John Barton.
