This is most of the stuff I need for my yoga/meditation classes and Heart Like a Wheel workshop at Olds College Fibre Week 2012. (That suitcase is sitting on a bin of fibres. The blanket covers a stack of books. The inside of the suitcase is packed with a strange combination of props and spinning equipment. I'm not telling you why I'm bringing the pool noodles. You'll have to come to the classes.)
I haven't begun to pack my personal things, which will involve another (smaller) suitcase, a few cooking supplies and personal projects. I'll be staying in Olds for 10 days. My teaching is over on Wednesday, but my drivers have classes until Friday, so I would not want to run out of things to do. Ahem.
That is, if they still let me ride along with them. I'm simply excess cargo--I don't drive, so I can't help with that and I'm told that chatting on and on tends to distract the driver, which I'd prefer not to do. I did warn Susie and Hilary that I had quite a bit of stuff to drag along and they assured me that this wouldn't be a problem. That may change if they read this blog post.
This is the fibre room I just cleared out by doing a massive yarn destash and organization. I've been going through the exercises for each class and the workshop, deciding what would best suit experienced spinners who may not have practised meditation and who probably haven't deliberately combined fibre work, yoga and meditation into one glorious (I hope) experience.
That room is not messy. My space is not cluttered. I prefer to think of it as fluid and flexible. Yes, that's it, fluid and flexible.
