The last several weeks have been a flurry of work (the out of studio kind), emotions, and sleep deprivation. It is nice that everything is finally quieting down. I really need it to in order to function with any regularity. Picnic is fast approaching and I have very little which is completed to take with me. I have a start and I know what I intend to make, so I am not as worried as maybe I should be, but I've been in this position before. I don't think that worrying about it is going to make any difference. I know what I need to do and I know when I will do it. Now is about the time that I start to really work on things and today was a good studio day.
It is interesting to think about the two ways in which I reach the high for studio work. Of late I have been seeing a pretty little lady and in the past I have often had a lot of time to work. Both seem to affect my work in positive ways. I feel more confident in my actions both if I feel confident about myself socially or if I have been practicing day in and day out. I wonder if I don't need this balance though? Is it not necessary for me to be socially okay in order to make good work? I think it is. And so, over the course of about four hours this afternoon I put together five small pieces. It felt good and I am confident in the results.
Life is going well. Expect more posts soon. I can feel the creative impulse trying to burst out again. It's good to have the batteries feeling re-charged.
