A People Day SOLSC 4

This was originally posted on http://www.yetthereismethod.net/

I’m a reluctant people person. Most folks are skeptical when they hear me say it, but it’s true. I’m comfortable in front of an audience or a class, but I’d just as soon be by myself or with my wife with a book and a cup of coffee.

Today, though, was a people day. I was working for the local land trust, sharing information about our organization at a Kite Festival. There were nearly 3,000 people in attendance, but I’m happy to say that not nearly that many of them actually stopped by my booth. It was a full day though, filled with children and adults who dropped by to see the animal puppets and coloring activity that I had for them.  If you’ve never played with a raccoon puppet, you need to. It’s a lot of fun!

As a teacher, there’s a group of people that I see everyday. Most of them, of course, are eight or nine years old. Every once in awhile I have a parent drop by, but that’s about it. The same people, nearly every day. It’s good for me, as a non-people-person, to do things like I did today, stretching myself and getting out of my comfort zone. Sort of like what I’m doing right now. At the end of the day, I’m a better person for it.

Thank you, reader, for dropping by my booth. I’m glad you were here!
