As I'm recovering from Devotion, a thought has occurred to me: I love to produce. The whole experience of producing Devotion was a thrill. I love being busy to the point of distraction, I love having my house and studio filled with people that need things from me, I love working with teams of people that are singlemindedly working toward the same goal, I love all of the problems that get solved, and even the ones that don't get solved can teach me something.
This was also the case when I was a waitress. I wanted the busiest section with the most demanding customers. Loved running back and forth from the cook to the customer (more on this later when I discuss why dancing is like waitressing!) trying to solve problems and make everyone happy. I love offering suggestions instead of just saying "No, we don't have that."
I also love a busy day at the FCBD Studio. People enjoying themselves and seeing the light go on over their heads when I show them something that they didn't think they could do or wear or understand.
And amidst all of this, staying centered and calm. I have to work on that because I can let myself get ungrounded and lose my temper, which I hate to do. But when I can stay cool and make things "go" I feel so rewarded at the end of the day.
