I started this new project several months ago, sort of as an exercise. It’s an autobiographical piece with a rather lyrical turn of phrase, poetic in parts, somewhat experimental. It’s pretty special, because it’s going to be a gift. I’m copying it into a leather journal I bought, which is painstaking but will be worth it in the end.
It’s a joyous project that I’m very excited about. It’s going to take a while, which is why I finally got going on it now. I had something happen today that sort of spurred it on and lit a fire under my bum. I can’t wait.
More than anything though, I can’t wait for the next month to go by. Or rather, the next 3.5 weeks. There is a lot in those weeks that I am looking forward to, but mostly just the sheer joy of being finished with this job. And this weekend is a long weekend, so hurrah for that!
