Mia took this photo of me with a Kodak Brownie film camera that my friend Jill lent her when we went to Governor’s Island a few weekends ago. I like it. I’ll show you my photos next week.


I’ve lost steam on posting this week. I don’t really have anything to say. I suppose things come and go in waves and I’m on a downturn (also, I’ve been sick). It certainly isn’t because of lack of time. I think I’ve grown accustomed to being slammed with multiple projects and working 15 hr days, then nothing at all for a month and then to back to being slammed, rather than this drawn out schedule of working 5 or so hours a day. My current project is dictating the pace. Not really sure how to handle my time. I’m not being as productive as I’d like, even though I would have killed to have a more balanced work schedule such as this when I was working way too many hours. But this is how it always goes…it’s almost easier to be more productive when you’re slammed because you’re already on a roll. But these days? I just want to watch concert videos on YouTube and eat pie.

    I couldn’t agree more – when I’ve nothing to do, I find it hard to get motivated. But when I’m swamped with work? I’ll GO, GO, GO! all day. I don’t understand it.

    By the way, you look lovely – so at peace.

    Great photo, Mia! So true what you wrote here about the pressure of deadlines or lack of them determining our work style. I struggle with this all the time! Thanks for sharing.

    Nice picture. What kind of pie? 😉

    I do understand the feeling – it can feel strange slowing down when you’re used to being constantly inundated with work.
    You look so lovely in Mia’s photo. Pie sounds perfect.
