Home, finally. I'd hug the house if my arms were long enough, I swear.

I removed all dead food from the fridge, and made the amazing tasty sausage-tomato-onion thing for dinner, and got partway through opening all the paper mail and deleting all the email.

Good news: the consulting gig at Ponte is at the PO-generating stage, and I may even start this week. Woo hoo!

Bad news: CNET delivered the official "no, thanks". No shock at this late remove.

I'm planning to bleach the well on Saturday morning. Meanwhile, we're all bottled water, all the time.

Received an interesting email request from an acquaintance, to teach him some magical work that I don't actually feel all that expert at. Not sure whether to turn him down flat, or meet him and work on basics, which I suspect he needs. (Once he has those basics, acquiring the abilities he wants will be rather simpler....) Part of me is flattered to be asked; part of me says 'Avoid, you don't need another responsibility.' I'll see how I feel in the morning.

Current Mood: pleasedpleased

Magical Workings

Certainly don't do something that you don't feel comfortable teaching, and don't allow the flattery to overwhelm you and let you take on more responsability than you want.

But if you have the time and energy, go for it. Going through the basics is always good -- even (and perhaps especially) for the teacher.

Re: Magical Workings

Teachers almost always learn more in teaching something "new" (or the first time) than the students do. Some teachers take advantage of the fact by teaching the basics and then having the students dig into and present/teach on some deeper aspect -- it's the digging, organizing, and subsequent feedback that does the trick.

welcome back!

amazing how the "real world" closes back up around us so fast, isn't it?
