The End of the First Day

Today was great. I sat all day with an amazing artist, trying to learn everything I could about the ramshackle-fixer-upper-brand-new-totally beautiful dance space I am going to try to run.

Here’s the thing: I am going to run a three-year old artist-owned performance space that caters to young dancers and choreographers. Which means that I have to, you know, see both sides of that particular coin. The opportunity is the challenge.

Today, I fixed the printer (it wasn’t broken, it just wasn’t plugged in correctly). I also called a lunch break for us and left at 6:30pm. I am trying so hard to be good about boundaries. There is so much to do. Some of it is frighteningly basic, like taking out the trash, and some, much more complex. Does anyone want to join a Board of Directors?

There is a pie place about three blocks away that I will frequent. Come by and see me, why don’t you?

    Your new place of work sounds amazing — and slightly similar to a dance/performance art space I was involved in for a while in Chicago. Were I in NYC, I would have loved to help in some way. Really, good luck with this. I’m certain you’re going to do great things there.
