While I was at Epcot yesterday (September 15, 2015), I looked through the portable schrub wall in Germany and saw that the garden train area is finally starting to take shape. The buildings look great. I am pretty sure this area will be on display come the 20th Annual Food and Wine Festival.

My train is in the station.

Orange Blossom CannonballEver get that feeling that if you don’t hurry that the train, YOUR train, will leave the station without you? Well, right now that is where my life is. Over the past couple of months several people have reached out to me about doing other things in my life. All the options are near and dear to my heart, and the latest one involves teaching photography.

Being a teacher is something I have always considered beyond my reach. My Dad was an Industrial Arts professor at NYU in the 60’s prior to he and my mom moving to Orlando to start their company, which lasted nearly 50 years. My sister is a teacher, my wife Kathy is a teacher, so you could say in various forms, teaching is in my blood, though in reality, I was adopted at birth. Heck, even my next door neighbor is a teacher, and our across the street neighbor is a teacher. Oh my God, I am surrounded by teachers! So, maybe God really is trying to tell me something…
