this high humidity and continual rain is driving me a bit crazy...
each morning I enter the studio cautiously and wonder what mayhem it will have wrought...
the timing of the drying for these is critical to progress and the constant moisture in the air is toying with me...
I'm not used to losing pieces like this...
just when I thought I'd adjusted properly,...
the cruel mistress has returned and is laughing at me once again...

working or not?

more fulgurites are slowly assembling...
between Wyatt and his needs
customers and theirs, which I'm most grateful for,
household maintenance, inside and out
grass cutting and firewood cutting,
including the big tree fall last week
vehicle repairs, cooking and laundry
and the proverbial kitchen sink appearing at the most unexpected times
I get to make some work each day...
somewhere in there...somewhere...
my days of only studio work ended long ago
it is the mix of it all that brings balance to my life here
and somehow, someway, I'm the better for it...
