there has not been much room lately for blogging. on the other hand there's been plenty of other activity and a tad more sunlight. the natural kind. the kind i like even when the temperatures are freezing frigid. since the holidays, life has slowed into a pleasant pace and settling in has felt better than making art. last night i began two new pieces. i feel like i am saving up the moments, storing up feelings and ideas. before moving i kept thinking about my new place and what it would be like and now it's here and i live in it. it is hard to adjust and make a place to create in this new place. i feel no need to have space outside of my place to create art but it's awkward, trying to figure it out. i have plenty of space, it's just the trying to coordinate the space in a way that works well for me between the comings and goings and gatherings. i received an ikea gift card from the guys at the office for christmas, which is so nice, but after perusing online, i'm not so sure, what it is i want to go for. shelves or tables or rugs or storage or what. i think i'll figure it out, there's no urgency. aside from all of this and that. all is well. and soon hopefully soon i'll have something new to show for this great pause.
