Distractions While Working


I sat down last night to start assembling the workshop handbook for my Oregon workshop. Yes, that's more than half a year away. I put a lot of effort into the planning of my workshops. I try to eliminate as many unknowns as possible for my students. The weather is always variable. Other things - daily routines, what to bring, what to wear, what to expect, potential locations - are not. So I document those. I think it's important as an instructor to remove as many surprises as possible.

However, tonight I keep getting distracted. I pop into the photo library to pull an image or two for the handbook. My eyes start wandering. I start looking at photos in Oregon. That expands to the Pacific Northwest. The next thing I know, 30 minutes have passed and I'm looking at photos from Washington state on the trial to Panther Creek Falls. And them I'm blogging about it.

Ok... back to writing.
