Am I still learning? Drawing Luke Hockley.

Dear Self,

I just want to check in with you and make sure I am still learning.

I’m just a bit worried that I have fallen into that trap of seeing myself in the role of teacher and somehow mistakenly believing that learning is about what my students do.

When I am teaching learning feels alive in me.

Good, that’s good.

And I am always exploring movement and seeking to grow my capacity as a performer.

Again, excellent.

However, it has been a phase of building new things and I wonder if my questions about how I move have been a little quiet.

Or have they?

Perhaps it is that I am not in any formal study right now and I am craving that?

Or a specific teacher to help guide me deeper?

Maybe I feel like my learning is sitting too surface and I want to dive deeper but am not quite sure how to do that on my own.

Or is it just that I need to carve out the space to be in my studio spending deep time being curious and sound and movement and story?

If I look at it subjectively it would be difficult to accuse me of not being in a process of learning. It is kind of my default way of being in the world.

I just want to remember the importance of my curiosity.

Learning, always learning.
