Until I can devote more time and until I have a great “skill set” in this technology, I will keep my current interests here under one Spiritosablog. It is a great help in following my own line(s) of thinking at a certain point in time. I have short-term memory problems. My mind skips from point to point and surfing the internet while maintaining any kind of linear through-line in my thinking is not possible at this time.
I am still interested in keep track of my hobbies as such:
1. Pottery, that I desperately need to find a new home for doing my work in (Studio, etc). Clearly that cannot happen where I now live and it is one of my main motivations in finding a new place to live.
2. Storytelling – working in this art form and being a storyteller, in place of doing theater. Also investigating the overlap of language learning and storytelling. Finding community. Also another motivations for a move? Somewhere I don’t have to drive many miles in the winter to find others.
3. Italian language. If I wish to committ to learning this further. Living in a city with resources to help in this might motivate me again. And finding other learners. And native speakers.
