There are so many new ideas for what eLASTIC means to art, education and now, life coming into focus for me this year. I feel as though I am stretching my reality and mindset as I move beyond my academic and university identity. What does it mean to learn and know outside or on the edge of the academic institution? What happens to that academic identity? I’m not sure how I feel about terms like independent, freelance, consulting, guest, and the like. And yet, I am thrilled by the possibilities of it all (and somewhat aghast that I am, quite frankly).
I am sure I will be struggling with this for some time to come. In the meantime, I am bending and pulling this blog this way and that by adding some alternative areas such as “Stretching the body and mind” and “Arts-based yoga ideas and sequences.” Take a look and let me know what you think.
