I LOVE WRITING I LOVE CREATING I LOVE DRAWING I LOVE SINGING I LOVE COLLAGING I LOVE LAUGHING
So:Why haven't I been doing those things?
Easy, I've been scrolling.
I've been scrolling and I've been pulled into too many conversations about problems I can't solve.
Seems like I should really get back to doing the things I love, eh?
A quick story for you then. I had been waiting to post photos of my Officially Official Studio, because I was feeling like it wasn't quite ready to share it officially. humph. Telling.
Last Thursday, I was all set to have a full day working on collages. I went out and turned on the space heaters, and then went back inside to put on some layers, take Talí (Taliesen Talisker the Talisman/ Wizard Pup/ Baby Dragon) on our daily walk, and then, you know, get to it. As I was trying to put on my socks (this is a task that takes maneuvering when you have a Taliesen Talisker the Talisman around) I smelled THAT smell. It's so distinct. It's the smell of brain cells working, it's the smell of sci-fi action movie climaxes, it's the smell of hot glue guns. It's the smell of, uh Oh.
So, I ran to the studio, yanked Out everything that was plugged In, and face timed my dad. Retired Electrician. He instilled a very healthy respect for electricity in me. I don't mess around. The studio electric is tied to the house electric, and the house electric in the laundry room is from the 40's. Way outta my league. But I found where the smell was coming from.
Hence the above photo. Never woulda found that color scheme if I hadn't almost burned the whole thing down.
Six to eight weeks till we get it all worked on. Electricians have quite the waiting lists.
I will not spend Six to Eight more weeks Scrolling, I'll tell you that.
More soon. ~k.
