Back at work, and I spent the whole day cleaning shelves and putting things away. I wish I had taken a picture of the massive heap of stuff that got piled in the studio over the last few weeks of summer! I am the master of stuff, you know. I don't really mind the process of getting the studio back in order after a break, in fact, I enjoy it. I think that maybe the cleaning and re-stocking that all teachers do at the start of a new term is a ritual that helps us ease back into the work after some time out of the classroom.
