Weird happiness.

There are a few things at the moment that are making me feel as if I have a purpose on earth.  One of those is teaching a module on sustainability to my students here at Plymouth College of Art.  When I’m involved in this kind of work I don’t have to lie awake at night wondering if I’m just making things worse either by doing something that is not sustainable or by not doing enough to promote sustainable practices.  And, unlike the internet, there is an immediate feedback loop that lets me know if I’m making sense – plus some of the students are kind enough to share their own journeys – emotional, material, intellectual – in and out of class.  The link between research and teaching has been fruitful here and I think may continue and grow in importance after this research phase is done.
