Arrival Day Scottsdale, AZ: Aaron Westerberg Workshop

Finally in my room!

Scottsdale Arizona Day 1
Today I flew to Scottsdale, Arizona to take a workshop from Aaron Westerburg.  The class doesn’t start for another 2 days.  I learned from my previous class with Jeremy Lipking that I need to arrive at least 24 hours before the workshop in order to transition properly.   In January, when I went to Jeremy’s workshop at his studio in Agora Hills, California, a suburb of Los Angeles, the airline canceled my connecting flight and sent me to San Francisco and then another flight to LA.  By the time I got to my hotel room in Agora Hills, it was 2 a.m. LA time.  (5 a.m. Philadelphia time) for a workshop that began that morning at 9 a.m. California time.  Before class I had to get 15 minutes of sleep, unpack, shower, organize my equipment, find Jeremy’s studio and schlep all of my supplies to the workshop.  Needless to say I was a little punchy that first day.
Having learned my lesson from that experience, I am here in beautiful Scottsdale 2 days early.  I am staying at the Sheraton Villa something.  My timeshare is adorable.  It’s the same as a small one bedroom apartment.  The weather is perfect.  The mountains are breathtaking.  I think I am going to like it here!
