Dear Harold and all, each person needs to find their own way. For those of
you who do manage to teach and create personal art at the same time, more
power to you! However, I believe that my teaching is an expression of my own
art and do not feel at all guilty for not practicing art in addition to
teaching it. I put enormous amounts of creative energy into my art classes
and that is where my focus is. To each their own... that's the best way!
