I spent a couple of weeks straight in the city. This is the first time I’ve done this since I’ve started working with Scott and the crew at RP. It was an overwhelming period of my life. Lots of social dynamics were fluid in a way that they have not been before. I had recently had my bicycle stolen and my 36th birthday. I invited people who I love to our space on Orcas and think that they were only there out of a sense of social obligation. I spent a good deal of time thinking about my influence and impact on the world. I spent time contemplating how I’ve never lived on my own and have never been ultimately responsible for my own well being. I have always relied on others to provide the comfort that would be best coming from myself. Self received a lot of coverage in this phase of my life. Perahps to the point that I might also consider myself to maybe be the most self-centered person I know. Maybe now that Leo has left us in its wake, we should get on with the regularly scheduled program.
And so. Planning. I’m looking to get a studio where I can work on island. I’m planning on moving the rack to this studio and maybe keeping it in a sound dampening, HVAC-enabled section of the space. A workstation with a dock ready for my presence or return. That sort of thing. Maybe I should put up a sign that says professional services, and another sign that says “no vacancy” so that they know that I’m already working for someone else. :-)
