You guys. I’ve missed you.
It’s been a busy four months, most of it not particularly pleasant or bloggable, but here are some highlights:
I finished a new design and shipped off the sample for publication. It’s good and wintry and that’s all I can tell you until November.
I took a photography course on refining your style and artistic message. It was so great – even the moments of painful self-evaluation. In many ways, it was about so much more than photography. Despite the interesting photographers in the class, the assignments, and the inspiration, what I remember most from this class is the statement: If you’re not doing what you love, why not? Ouch. Even though it wasn’t directed at me specifically, it made me feel like someone reached into my brain and poked all my hopes, regrets, and insecurities.
I watched our new yard sprout weeds as tall as me, and ran around finding all the farmers markets, consignment furniture stores, swimming holes, and french bakeries my new town has to offer. Did a bit of camping and a lot of cherry and peach-eating.
I knit a little tiny bit. And finally took some photos of this:
Which I love – it’s my favourite right now.
