I took too long puttering around this morning and now I don’t have time to go to the library before heading downtown for a gallery guide training class down at the WTC Tribute Center. Now I need to rethink my whole day.
This training should be interesting. Originally I trained to be a tour guide for the WTC site, but I just didn’t enjoy being “on” like that. I also found teaching draining for the same reason. Some people thrive on that, I prefer to be in the background. (It’s why I love writing.)
I believe a gallery guide just has to stand around answering questions and I think I would love that. I would get to interact with visitors from all over the country and the world, but not in a performing way. In fact, in a more real and interactive way. I will report back!
So these are my $29.99 reading glasses. Yeah, probably not worth it but what the hell. What’s spent is spent.
