I also just love teaching, the students are enthusiastic and hopeful about architecture and design and it helps remind me of why I wanted to be in that world in the first place. It's easy to lose the love for something once it's your job, even in a field where loving it is pretty much mandatory. Now that I'm not working (outside the home... I hate that expression) things are a little different and it's more about staying connected than curing a jaded outlook. Either way it feels like an honor to introduce a classroom of people to new ideas and images that will change the way they perceive their environment.
Since I do most of the thinking, writing, and sorting through pictures for these blog posts at night, being out of commission on Monday and generally exhausted on Tuesday makes a Tuesday post too tall an order. I could get really organized and plan in advance but that's just not me- yet. I've seen many places where people take one day a week to post a single image so that's my new Tuesday plan.
I'm going to post a single image from past or present, probably with the date, maybe with a caption or even an explanation if I just can't help myself! Here we go:
