I taught another workshop last night. Since registration has been terrible since the beginning of the year, this is actually only the second public workshop I’ve led in the past five months. It was nice to be back.
Also nice were the fees I collected. After paying for rental of the space, I have enough to relax, stop by the secondhand bookstore around the corner, and think about having a lime soda without feeling guilty regarding where the dollar-fifty ought to be going instead. The money’s not the reason I teach, and I’ll never make a living from it, but it’s a nice perq.
