The office corner in my studio apartment. A few of you have had lunch at my desk. It's where I spend most of my time these days.
I like keeping the blinds up past dusk in the winter. A couple of flickering votive candles make it cozy at that time of day. I need to get an amaryllis for a bit of green. The cat likes to flop in the middle of everything. My laptop is his arch-nemesis.
Do you ever take on too many things?
I have two creative projects wanting time and attention. You know about one. The other is a delicious secret that may never see the light of day.
Creating with little distraction is all I need now. So I made a decision. Over the coming months, 'today' will be sporadic. I'll check in if I have stuff to say.
I finished reading Orwell's Roses by Rebecca Solnit. If you have a smart reader on your holiday gift list, it's a delight. It speaks to the troubles in our world in surprising and reassuring ways. The essay "As the Rose-Hip to the Rose" is gorgeous.
If you want to see something that will have you thinking (and chuckling), go see, The Banshees of Inisherin. It is rich. There's so much in it. I could talk your feckin' ear off about it for an hour.
When Eric Burton says, "the acoustics," he shares our wonder at the sound of his voice alive in a gorgeous space.
