Let night fall -- a sweet end to a good day in The Month of Love


Night in the backyard

Barbara Muir © 2021

Today is a teaching day.  That means I run my night class in writing and
presentation from 6:15, to 9:15.  Right now this class with wonderful
people who I see on Zoom is a life saver.  I get to be with students, to
talk, teach and of course, to learn -- all the time.

After class we eat our dinner, and by that time, I am tired.  Even though
my students had a test today, and we hardly spent any time together, I
feel like I taught the whole night, because they were on my mind, and
I was waiting for their calls.  When some students did call for advice,
or clarification I felt happy.  In fact I was just writing this -- and a 
student called.  

I guess what I mean by all this, is that I am lucky to have social 
interactions in this lonely time.  Artists work alone most of the time,
and count on exhibition openings for their social time, but those
are not happening.  

The picture is of our yard at night.  

Wishing you a joyous day creating.
