So much to do, so little time (but a little more than usual)...


My first 24 hours were particularly eventful, as someone's wise-cracky bulletin board note highlights.



Since I’ve been at "the colony", I’ve provided abundant sensory information, but what have I been doing?


In no particular order, here’s what I’ve done in my first few days:
  • Created two new pieces: a large shoes-and-wire piece and a small trash-in-trees drawing (images coming soon!)
  • Collaborated and performed a 15-minute installation/performance piece with three fellow artists (youtube coming soon!)
  • Taken lots of photographs
  • Run—alot with some serious hills
  • Swam several times a day
  • Early to bed and early to rise
  • Watched the sunset nearly every night
  • Hiked up a mountain (not on a trail)
  • Communed with nature
  • Made surprisingly many phone calls and emails
  • Eaten yummy food and met some great people
  • Been the author of (and occasionally the butt of) more than a few jokes and wisecracks.
It’s amazing what a guy can do if he’s used to not having lots of time—and then suddenly has some!
