Picturing Myself

I spent a little time at the MCLA campus earlier this week, taking a look at the classroom where I’ll be teaching my cartooning course beginning September 6.

It’s always useful to me, when I take on a teaching gig, to scope out in advance the environment where I’ll be doing the teaching. It mades the coming challenge feel more real if I can picture myself in the actual space, standing before imagined versions of the students who will soon be occupying the room’s chairs, expecting me to impart something reasonably interesting that they can wrap their inquiring minds around.

As you can see from the snapshot above, I’m pretty darned good at imagining myself when I set my mind to it. In fact, I can sometimes lose track of which is the me who is doing the imagining and which is the one being imagined.

One of us came home afterwards and resumed everyday life, but I’m not 100% sure that it was the right one.
