This Covid-19 pandemic is quite something else. I am an introvert at heart, and I could do this quarantine thing for a Very Long Time and be happy as a clam, but I know it’s not as easy for many, many others in the world. I have been thinking a lot about how the world is changing, how this is forcing us to slow down, reassess our priorities, reconnect with our families, get some overdue projects done. In some ways, I think it is possible to see some positives to the current situation.
Speaking of overdue projects, I have finally relaunched my web site. The old one was done on software I no longer owned, and I could no longer edit it. Over time, the information became so outdated that I took it down and waited for a block of time to create a new one. Wish granted.
That was a couple of computer crashes ago, with backups gone. I spent some time looking on the Internet to see what I could rescue. I re-photographed what I still have in my possession. In the process, I ran across this old blog I used to maintain, and I am sort of stumped about what to do with it. I am not sure who reads blogs anymore, but I didn’t want to lose the history that was there. I started up a presence on Instagram, and for now, I think I will use that mostly, but retain the blog here for more polished thoughts, and see how it goes.
Like an idiot, I moved the blog to my new site and deleted the old one without telling people where I’d gone, so I lost the few subscribers I had. It’s been 4 years since I posted there, so they probably forgot about me anyway.
So, in the continued days of social distancing, one of the priorities I have been reassessing is the time I spend in my studio. It’s time to get some new work out in the world.
