February always feels like the bleakest month to me. Even though I live in the desert, and am mostly exempt from the brutal cold felt elsewhere, the heart of the winter never fails to throw a pall over me.
I spent the week mired in darkness, exacerbated by stumbling through some old emails (while searching for a long lost attachment.) Several from now dead friends, some from now non-friends, some reminding me of my own skeletons in the closet.
Nonetheless, I force my way through, trying to dance with the muse, keeping the flame burning. To that end, I sent two (!) layouts to Magcloud this week. If all goes well, it will be a one-two punch for my next publishing efforts. And a big project is also looming, that will see the light of day this summer.
Also popped off a roll of expired slide film through the Kiev 6C, cross-process here we come.
Good things can emerge even when there is darkness.
My hit list for this week:
The new album by Beirut is out (pretty much listening to this constantly)
Currently addicted to Peaky Blinders on Netflix
Lusting for a panoramic camera. Anyone got 3 grand they can give me?
