Sometimes there is a real breakthrough in the studio and I have just had one. I decided not to put pressure on myself to finish 'downstream' before I go away. Seems like such a small decision and yet I was putting pressure on myself to complete this project when the reality is that it can wait. And will be better off for the delay I imagine.
Instead, I have been writing up notes on the collaboration with Fiona and sticking in examples of all the testing bits I made along the way. I have been a little behind on this of late. The notebook will be fun to look back on one day and certainly will be used as a reference for some of the techniques I have been experimenting with in the last year. Most of those have come about by exploring different directions - being nudged or pushed by Fiona in our collaborative endeavours, or just merely by my own meandering.
So, a pause here and a push there. Gradually getting ready for our trip which is approaching very quickly.
