changes

Seriously considering dumping photography for awhile, I’m feeling almost zero connection with my work. I’m finding myself drawn to the tactile… drawing, building, wrapping (again), playing guitar.

Light (with a capital L)

Need to re-read Robert Irwin’s biography ASAP. I’ve realized that I haven’t let go of my interest in light (besides photography, durr) and I feel pretty embarrassed that I’m just now seeing it… After xmas I didn’t put the strings of LED lights away. I took them and restrung a couple of sets, the lighting is subtle and I’ve found that I like turning off all the lights and just leaving one or both of the LED strings on.

I need to chase this.

Vonnegut on finishing a work & purpose

"I felt after I finished Slaughterhouse-Five that I didn’t have to write at all anymore if I didn’t want to. It was the end of some sort of career. I don’t know why, exactly. I suppose that flowers, when they’re through blooming, have some sort of awareness of some purpose having been served. Flowers didn’t ask to be flowers and I didn’t ask to be me. At the end of Slaughterhouse-Five…I had a shutting-off feeling…that I had done what I was supposed to do and everything was OK."

This helps me. While I don’t claim that a series of pieces I complete are anything compared to Vonnegut’s works it still helps explain the feeling I sometimes get when I finish a particularly solid body of work…. The sense that I’ve finally said something I’d been struggling to say and a small sense of contentment, at least for a bit.
