Coffee in the Los Angeles skyline mug (in a sloppy metaphor for life as we head in to this year's presidential election, the mug was dirty when I took it from the cabinet so I cleaned it up) "Willin" covered by Steve Earle on iTunes. I took the whole weekend off. In truth I even kicked off early Friday as I had a very old friend in from Paris for the day and we went for lunch and a blueberry lager (or two) at The Glenwood. Now it's Monday and I am theoretically back at work ("Jungleland" by Bruce Springsteen just came on iTunes. iTunes has a very good sense of humor for software.)
There are orders to fire, orders to ship, pieces to design, a studio multi-artist show to plan, bills to pay, invoices to send... in short, all the normal tasks for the studio. And the Sky Chair and my newly returned Kindle still call to me. Maybe I shouldn't take days off. Maybe work is like dieting or exercising: It's easiest to do when it's a daily routine--no breaks.
