friends, back in January i wrote a post about how i had just finished putting together a presentation for a future contemplative photography workshop and about how i was convinced that, despite my efforts, i was afraid that no one would likely ever come to such a class. i was blown away by all of the insightful and supportive comments on that post and i let the ideas for the workshop slowly simmer on the back burner….
well, as you know, i have been doing some VENTURING this year, in small but consistent ways. when i had the opportunity to visit the local lavender farm in may, the thought occurred to me that that would be the ideal location for my intended workshop. in a moment of bravery, i sent an email to the gals at the farm and was shocked to get a positive response back regarding the idea of the class.
we agreed to get together and discuss it, but their busy season was just beginning on the farm and the ball got dropped. which of course i interpreted as “they changed their mind – they don’t really want to do it after all….”
friends, it took me 6 months to re-approach the idea and send another email. imagine my surprise when i got an immediate and positive response!! i met with the activity coordinator and found out that my class is in line with the healing focus they want to promote at the farm. the workshop is now scheduled for april 20!! i still can hardly believe it!!
of course it still will not happen if i do not have enough participants, but i move forward on faith, taking one step at a time…. oh, i will also be teaching the class in a 3-part series at my local artbeat on main street and alta vista gardens in january. you can read about it here.
this venturing thing?? it’s good. really good. (but it wouldn't be as good without all of you out there cheering me on. that's for sure!! THANK YOU!!!)
