one last big ticket item, check on my dusty studio list. some days it is so hard for me to find that groove. it is true. it can be painful. but what i know is this – when i find that groove. when i see their faces light up as they look over each detail. when i know my list is clean. well i feel better about me. i can see that i am doing what i am meant to do. leaving all the snotty chatter that i create in my own head, behind. hoping to remember to keep that chatter in the closet on the next run. “don’t wake me” – yep – she pushed me. and i am pretty happy about that.

next weekend b and i plan on doing nothing but lounging. catching up and hoping for some good movie time. so let this week begin. i have new bits waiting to come to life and hit the shop shelves. loving all the new fun planned. studio. time. plenty of studio time.

    amazing! SO good and i was meant to read your words right this moment. the chatter, the “lifelines” (instead of deadlines), the ways i disappoint and am too emotional fragile to find momentum everyday…it’s okay. it is what it is. thank you.
