So when I signed up for the NYS BOCES Arts in Education Showcase 2011, I did not expect to meet the king of frisbees. After all, I’m a published author! A writer! Expecting to show off the educational prowess of my books! But there he was, showing us how important it is to stay fit. That’s Gary Auerbach, World Freestyle Frisbee Champion (FrisbeeGuy.com).
Frisbees and Fun
Yes, I’m balancing a frisbee on one finger, and while you can’t tell from the photo, it is spinning. Gary showed me how. After all, he offers interactive, motivational, dynamic workshops, assemblies, & clinics. “Perfect for all ages and abilities.” Hmmmm, I wonder if he’s ever quoted Alfred Lord Tennyson? “Let the great world spin forever, down the ringing grooves of change.” Or Thomas Carlyle? “Imperfection clings to a person, and if they wait until they are brushed off entirely, they would spin forever on their axis . . . advancing nowhere.” Oops, I guess it’s the writer in me, spinning out of control.
Getting back to the Frisbee Guy, he’s a nice guy, too! Actually, I met a lot of nice, informative, entertaining, etc. etc. etc., people there. Where? The BOCES Arts in Education Showcase 2011, hosted by Cohoes Middle & Elementary Schools on Thursday, May 19. If you check out my last post, you can read about the map guy I met. And next time? Well, it might be a dynamic poet, a guy who makes saving money and learning economics a FUN thing, or a musician, or even . . . another author! So, check in again. By the way, I welcome your comments, and I hope you’ll check out my website at: www.annrichduncan.com. And while you’re there, watch our spoof (Seed Baby).
