Too Little For Tuesday

Coffee in the New Orleans skyline mug, waiting for iTunes to reboot for music. Ah, there it is, "Moondance" by Van Morrison on the Apple TV. It's another dark Tuesday. Last week it felt like we lived in Seattle it rained so much, and this week is shaping up to be more of the same. April showers indeed. Grey weather makes me want to hibernate, not go forth and conquer the glass mountain.

Speaking of glass, my latest order shipped from Bullseye last Friday so I should have it later this week. Good thing too, as I am completely out of clear irid--again! I still have enough frit to sink a battle cruiser, but I sure go through the clear irid quickly.

Got a call yesterday from a gallery owner I met at the Dallas show and she would like to propose my work to a corporate client for a series of eight large wall panels--short-term timeline. The work would be interesting, and I'm getting to the end of the Buyer's Market orders so the additional income would be welcome--as would the opportunity to put off the inevitable shift back into cerebral glass activities--like planning the teaching I would like to do and new directions for the studio that comes at the end of the heavy production cycle. Direction shifts--like all change--are very hard. My body in production motion prefers to stay in production motion. Or it prefers to curl up on the couch with a good book. Neither are viable options so I heave myself out of my chair and head to the studio.

Not "heave".

"Rise gently to my feet and float out the back door to my studio" might give a nicer picture...

Darkness isn't any fun. However, we were in the 80's last week and then had 7 inch of snow on Saturday. 56 on Sunday and 72 yesterday. Will Rogers said if you dont' like the weather, stick around, it will change tomorrow. Isn't that the truth.
