I did my opening sermon for Shadow Channel, the video production course at Sandberg Institute to which I am visiting tutor. Listened to Ash Sarkar be much smarter than me beforehand. My students, a marvellously diverse group, are wonderful humans all, and the extended introductory drinking session was superb. I have great hopes for them, and they are all as curious and hungry and angry as I had hoped.
Amsterdam, which I had never visited before, feels oddly familiar.  The broad low buildings, the little food places and bars slotted between warehouses and wastelands. I could get to like it here. De Ceuvel feels like it could be home base, maybe? I’m back here in January to see what my initiate are making. It may be a start of something new for me, too.
Not so bad.
Time to go home.
