i went to an old friend’s birthday party last night and i hadn’t seen in probably at least 6 months. 4-6 months seems to be more normal cycle between seeing old friends. it was nice to see how productive he has been with his art work. there is something powerful about seeing your body of work overflowing in your studio. i couldn’t help think about my ‘body’ of work and because so much of my ‘work’ is not a visual object, i don’t think i get the same sense of satisfaction. of course it’s not about volume or the miles i’ve accumulated running, but the it’s nice to have milestone markers to keep that habit of creation going stronger. the more you practice, the more you want to practice to have that snowball effect. anyway, one day, i will get a piece of artwork from my various artistic friends.
