For me, everything becomes clear when I'm teaching, and it's nice to be able to share something as practical as bread-baking. As lovely as the purpose for our gathering is, the really special part of the baking workshops is the down time. Everyone had something to share--music, ideas, stories, recipes, unusual perspectives. No energy is lost or gained. Everyone brought something to share and went home a little brighter, and a little sleepier.
