A few weeks in now, and I’m definitely settling in to both the studio and the city.
My days revolve around teaching, practicing, eating and adventuring– walks to local parks, or heading into Melbourne to explore different parts of the city. Although I’m out in quiet little Werribee, a ways out from the city (45 minute train ride), Melbourne itself is wonderful. Easy public transportation, tons of cute little neighborhoods, overflowing with interesting architecture, public art, and cafes and amazing food of every time (particularly dessert). I can definitely understand why everyone falls in love with living here.
I don’t have easy internet access, so I’m using that to practice more and explore more. As a result, my posts here will be less frequent…. does that make them more valuable?
Also, this week marks my two-year anniversary for teaching. I can’t believe how the time has flown by! The last year especially, as I have been teaching full-time the whole time. To celebrate, a few of us from our teaching training who are in the area got together to have lunch. Always good to mark these sorts of occasions and remember how far we’ve come (in my case, capably as well as geographically!).
