august galivants + circus dreams

image courtesy of apartment therapy

over the next two weeks i'm finishing summer school, teaching a 3-hour art journaling workshop, hosting benefit for the animals, teaching at our first ever teacher training in arlington, setting up vintage/reclaimed goodies in tranquil space boutiques, hosting a trunk show and chair yoga extravaganza at the phillip's collection plus the heaps of admin and big picture ideas we're currently concocting at tranquil space, tranquil space foundation, TranquiliT, and tranquility du jour. whew!

ever since dear friend amanda hirsch tweeted about a dream to run away and live a bohemian lifestyle, i've been smitten. don't get me wrong, i'm in love with my life. however, some days the circus appeals. sure i'd grow frustrated with the experience after a few days of freedom from my current daily to-dos plus those super tight outfits (and lord knows i wouldn't be impressed with the treatment of the animals - that's a whole separate blog post), but there is something beckoning an escape. probably has to do with the fact that i've been in school non-stop since last fall semester, but who's counting?

sometimes we just have to shake things up and shaking things up in august i am indeed. below are my plans for august and labor day weekend. sir louis will be in tow for everything except disney leadership training (they're dogists). my hope is to refill the well on many levels: from professional development to creative fulfillment.

never fear, you will be taken with me on all the experiences as i'll be sharing tales, photos, and insights!

august 14-19 learning heaps at disney leadership institute

Oh my, and I thought my summer was busy! However, since I finished grad school last fall, I know how good it must feel to get to do other things that don't involve school. Enjoy every minute!

Some times I feel that I am already in the circus!!! Like you I have plans to shake things up in August. A week of with hubs where we intend to decorate/garden and go out for lunch and a solo trip to Italy is booked mid-August. I tend to work in academic years and I am mentally prepping for the new year and I know this next one is going to be crazy.... hopefully the change of routine in August will put me in the right frame of mind for 2011 - 2012.

Enjoy your August and I am looking forward to reading about your adventures...

I so dream of joining the circus.. trapeze tutu's and all! or perhaps an artist colony, where we paint, draw, discuss art and literature.. and of course add in some yoga, all while wearing comfy shawls and bangles..

i hope august helps you feel a little more "bohemian".. i think i'll just watch chocolat or water for elephants and see if that helps me..
