i have been neglecting the blog...
it's amazing how life can get so busy all of a sudden. the life scramble feels a bit like musical chairs sometimes - you're plodding along to the happy tune, knowing that at some point you will have to pick up the pace and you cross your fingers in the hopes that when the music stops you will have a chair in front of you. this is especially true of the self-employed artist, such as moi. one always has to be ready for the music to stop. when the red phone rings, you have to be prepared to drop everything and find a chair to sit on. and there are always way more players than there are chairs. anyway, it drives me to distraction. i imagine that it's a bit like being a mother and trying to get some sleep. one eye must always remain open.
anyway, lately my red phone has been ringing a lot and work has taken up way too much mental space for me to sit down and write.
but i'll be back. promise.
